i have an oem filter, have removed the 2 stoppers on either side of the glove box. however, there is another stopper/device that i don't know how to remove and don't want to snap off. any suggestions?
thanks in advance.
Just pull the cap towards you with a little force...It'll snap out, so be careful or it could fly away. Then just unhook the arm. It'll retract into its "shock absorber" body, but it's easily pulled back out for re-installation.
Best to do this when the car is warm as the plastic parts will be a bit more pliable and less likely to fracture.
Also, there are several different replacement options nowadays...I just got one for $11 or $12 at the local Advance Auto shop.
