2. Replace the air cleaner filter.

3. Insert the air cleaner cover in the hinge (2) and engage the clip (1) after closing the cover.

Information

If the vehicle is operated in extremely dusty or sandy areas, replace the element more often than the usual recommended intervals (refer to “Maintenance Under Severe Usage Conditions” in this chapter).
