  • Locate the "hood open" lever on the driver's side of the inside of the car, below the dashboard. Pull lever toward you. You will hear a "click." Go to the front of the car. The hood should be "popped" slightly. Reach under the hood, find a lever, and move the lever to the left. This will completely release the hood latch.

  • Find the anchor to hold up the hood of your car. This anchor should be laying along the ledge in front of the radiator. Lift the anchor and insert the end into the hole on the lower side of the hood.

  • There will be four clips on the air filter box - two on the front, one on the right and one on the right back. Release the clips from the box by pushing them away from the box.

  • Gently lift the cover of the box from the lower part of the box. Remove the old air filter from the box and set it aside. Place the new air filter in the box. Replace the cover and place the four clips back on the box.

Haha this is not moderately or even remotely hard to do, I made a 1 minute diy video that shows how simple it is.
