DIY, change the air filter on Ford Transit Connect made between 2002 and 2013. You will require a small flat blade screwdriver to do this repair that will probably take you about 10 minutes, if you follow the next simple steps.
In the beginning, open the hood of your car and look near the battery for a triangle-shape plastic cover. That is the place where the air filter is located. You will have to remove three metal safeties and a collar, all marked in the picture below.
In order to remove the collar you can use the flat screwdriver, because it is held by a small screw. For the metal clamps, you can just use your bare hands. After you take out all of them, you will be able to remove the triangle cover and the air intake hose. This will reveal the air filter, as indicated in the next image.
At this point, you will be able to replace the air filter, but only after you make sure the replacement is the same. You should always make sure you acquire compatible filters for your car. To finish the repair, just reverse the instructions presented above. Place the cover back on the filter compartment and reinstall the hose, carefully, fastening its screw. That is all you need to do, in order to replace the air filter on Ford Transit Connect made between 2002 and 2013.
