Default Air filter housing removal?

I'm going to be doing the auto transmission fluid change on the V6, so need to remove the air filter box. I can see a jubilee clip to remove on the connection to the engine air inlet. What else is there to release? I understand that the base is held by friction into the rubber isolators underneath. Is there a connection to the shannon tube to release? (assuming that the V6 has one?)

The jubilee clip that is all that needs to be released. Remove the upper part of the filter box, filter and then with an almighty effort pull the lower box upwards.

Strange! mine is held in place with 4 25Tex head screws.
Perhaps it is because it is an early PPD car?

Ahah! So is mine (built June/July '99) so I'll take care before I start yanking. Many thanks, Mike.

Hi Mike.
I think Chuck above is referring to the top of the air box which you remove when you are changing the air filter, the air box it's self is held in by three lugs going into three rubber grommets.

Have removed a few of these on my various ZT 1.8Ts.

They are held VERY firmly and yes and upward strong tug can remove them from that firm hold.

However, that does not always work for me they are stuck so fast. What always works is to carefully place a length of wood and use that as a lever. The wood enable you to have much more leverage control so no sudden letting forcibly go with risk of damage and/or injury.

Another tip. I place a small smear of Vaseline on the twin plastic lugs which definitely helps re-fitting and subsequent removal. Replacing hoses and CSCs etc on my ZTs meant sometimes removing the same Air Filter housing several times on the same car. That Vaseline smear was a great help.

OK. Today I have carefully removed my air filter housing and it only has two grommets and projections on the base (2 litre V6) and the front connects to the plastic oval pipe from the shannon tube.


I have located the auto transmission filling point (aren't they small!) and put a smear of rubber grease on all the push pull and hose connections ready for the fluid change.


I've also found the cause of my induction "roar" at certain revs. The jubilee clip connection to the induction was nipped at the bottom leaving a gap on the rubber pipe. All tidied on return and I now have a quieter induction - bliss!
