View Full Version : Cleaning out air filter box

What's the best way to get gunk outta my filter box? I need to clean my filter (it's way past due...) and the filter box itself is pretty gunked up. Would I be safe (after putting a towel in the throttle body) to hose out the box?

Unbolt box.... Take out of vehicle.. Shop vac or wipe everything out of it.... Do not jam a towel into your TB or MAF you will damage both and leave fibers everywhere..

I used my shop vac and a screwdriver to break up anything stuck on the bottom. Make sure the drain holes are clear.

yup, compressed air, scrapper, shop vac, put some duct tape or a cloth with a rubber band over the tb if using compressed air.
