  • Note:
  • When installing a new microfilter make sure of the following:
    - The filter is installed so that the arrow, on the end of the filter, is facing the rear of the vehicle and is pointed upward.
    - The microfilter sits on top of the two black plastic tabs, not behind them.
    - The ledge on the back side of the microfilter cover panel slides below the microfilter.
  • Note:
  • If the microfilter is improperly installed, the ledge on the back side of the microfilter cover panel pushes directly into the microfilter, causing distortion. A distorted microfilter may interfere with the recirculation door.
