How to Clean your Cars Air Filter

Tips & Warnings:
  • Do not use blow dryers or heaters to dry the air filter because it may cause damage.
  • This cleaning procedure is only for reusable affter-market performance filters. The stock air filter in your car is not meant to be cleaned and re-used.

First, safely remove the air sensor from your car's air intake.

Next, remove the air filter.

After that, Spray the filter cleaner on both sides of the air filter.
Allow the cleaning fluid to saturate into the air filter for 10 minutes.

Gently wash the air filter with cool water. If the filter is especially dirty, repeat steps 3 and 4 until the filter is clean.
Allow the filter to completely dry.

Once the filter is dry, spray the filter oil on the front side of the air filter and allow it to soak for 20 minutes. Be sure to completely cover the filter with the oil, so that it forms a seal.

Once the oil has set into the filter, then replace the filter into your car's air intake. Don't forget to reconnect the air sensor.
