View Full Version : opening the air box

07-25-2010, 05:11 AM
I just got a 2001 GT-S, and I'm loving it. So, anyway, I'm trying to check the air filter (probably put a K&N in it) but I can't figure out how to get the air box open. I found a clip on the Passenger side, and one on the back, but it's still held down tight.

How do i get it open?

It's definitely one of the dumber designs.

what do you mean dumber, its so easy to pop it off. its even easier of you loosten the big black hose

No the the one on my roommate's prius is easy, two clips and bang! you're good to go.

I did get it off, but the fact that I have to take the intake hose plus some is a dumb design, all of that could have easily been connected to the bottom part that most people don't want to remove.

I just meant that the plastic could be connected to the the bottom part, so that the lid that covered the air filter isn't such a pain in the ass to get off and on. more like a lid than an upper assembly i guess.
