How to change the air filter on Chevrolet Equinox 2010-2016

DIY, change the air filter on your Chevrolet Equinox, the model produced between the years 2010 and 2016. This replacement is very simple and you can do it in under 10 minutes if you follow the steps below. You will only require a T15 torx screwdriver and a new filter from your local auto parts shop.

Using the T15 torx, you have to remove the four bolts marked in the picture below, in order to get access to the air filter.

These are the simple steps you need to follow if you plan to service by yourself the air filter on Chevrolet Equinox, the model made between the years 2010 and 2016.
