If you can't figure out how to take the plastic cover off the engine, you'll never figure out how to change the air filter. Take it to a dealer or buy a book.

HI You must lift the cover at each corner its very hard to pull up .Watch our knuckles . The filter is on the back side of the cover.Its held with 6 s cruse.And when you replace the unit put some lube on the grommets to let them slide on the studs much easier to go on .Good luck
