Removing 03 2.3PZEV induction hardware

Does anyone have an adequate description of how to remove the induction/filtering system on this car. It's kind of packed in there and I'd like to know what comes out from the botton, and top. Additionally, where is the filter part located, and the carbon trap. Also, does the closed in chamber behind/below the headlight contain any hardware, or just an open space where the cold air piping and induction system meet up. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a how to posted. Do a search my friend.

But its easy, just take a when and some scraped knuckles. Take off the stock filter by the clamps (the part that goes into the MAF and throttle body at top)

Then take out the top stock box part with the meter on it.

Get underneath, take off half the splash shield, and take off the wheel. Open the fender trim.......unbolt that part and drop it out.

Then install you new intake of choice and make sure you save that stock part as its worth over 900.00

There is a 3rd bolt you can't see from inside the wheel well--- but if you remove the other 2 bolts on the air cleaner assembly and pull straight back it comes right out.

Enjoy your CAI
