Air filtre rubber mounts replacement.
Air filter rubber mounts replacement.
I wouldn't say that these mounts should be replaced periodically but after 20.000 miles or 40.000 km,they should be checked and replaced if they are broken.
Very easy repair...
3/8 drive ratchet
3/8 drive medium extension
3/8 drive 10mm socket
3 New rubber mounts with new bolts.I used bolts with plastic lock inserts.
Remove the air filter cover and the filter.
Using your ratchet and socket with extension remove all three bolts at the bottom of air filter housing.
You can see in this picture that the rubber mount broke off due to wear and tear and mostly vibration.
These are new rubber mounts with bolts and plastic lock inserts.
Install your new mounts by screwing them into the threaded holes on the air filter support.Then put bolts under each mount and use your ratchet and 10mm socket to get them nice and tight,this will help with the vibration and will secure the mounts for a long time.
Reassemble your air filter housing Add three new bolts with plastic inserts inside the housing on each mounts
