Alfa 156

Well Happy Replacing the AIR FILTER on a 2.0l 156?

Hi guys, just wondering if its worth replacing the air filter on my 2001 156? I've heard it can be a bit of a job , but if its worth it i'll do it. I'm not really looking to improve my performance hugely so am still debating on buy an after market one (K&N) or just replacing the original one.

Any advice?

there are 3 bolts in the top of the air box.

most likely these will be rusted/ceased

standard paper filters do an good job

if you manage to get the 3 bolts out without breaking the plastic housing, replace them with stainless steel or copper bolts ! saves you a lot of grief for the next airfulter change !

Its definitely worth doing, you don't want any swarf getting into the engine.
