    air filter replacement, V6 (B284L) engine

    the tools that it takes:
    • torx T25


    • hexagonal socket 7mm




    the parts needed:
    for an air filter use genuine Saab parts for the best performance.



    difficulty rating:
    not so difficult for people of mechanical skill.

    rough time estimate for the average DIY:
    about half and hour....... take easy your time.

    Steps:

    • -remove radiator beam screws that secure the intake pipe of turbo.


    unscrew the two bolts (T25) of the air hose see picture:



    • -disconnect the hose from the filter cover (7mm socket):


    wires too tight in the brown connector.
    I unplug for easy and security to avoid damages in the terminals.


    -secure with a cloth the entrance of the intake pipe of turbo to avoid dust in.


    • -remove the top of the air filter box



    see the filter after two years:


    clean the housing air filter....as much as you can... air compressed if you have.
    or a household vacuum cleaner. never mind, I use a cloth and brush.

    please note to protect the hose air admission to the turbo.




    • -mount a new filter




    • assembled in the same way but in reverse way.
