Going to adopt the no stupid questions thought here..... I've just been mucking about with the car and thought hey I've never cleaned the air filter on my SG xt so just thought i'd pull it out and give a refresh, not as simple as it sounds so my question is do i have to take the bumper off to access or can i take a wheel and guard insert off? Plus when i stuck my hand up to grab the filter it was sticky is that normal for the PW kit as i'm only used to the red oil K&N filter type?
Cheers
S

Look up online how to clean it, you don't want to over oil it

In regards to removing it, I took the drivers wheel off then wedged the guard aside, wasn't too difficult.

As above for removal and over oil warning.

I clean the filter off with degreaser then a soap and water soak followed by a thorough rinse and leave it out to dry. I have used a hair dryer in the past when I wasn't feeling patient.
Next is to oil it. There is a recommended amount of oil to use dependent on filter size. I premarked the volume level on the side of the k&n oil bottle in increments so I only use the amount recommended and have never had an issue.

I have two filters. That way there is no need to rush the job and let it 100% air dry and can take your time to oil it.

Presumably with some sort of switch-operated, CNC-machined, servo-controlled, on-car filter swapping mechanism in polished alloy? :mrgreen:
