Follow these steps to replace the HEPA filter:

  • Remove the hood.
  • Remove the rear apron from under the hood.
  • Both the left and right underhood aprons must be removed.
  • Remove the front apron from under the hood.
  • Fold the trunk seals back carefully to separate the front of the carpet from the underhood storage unit, then disconnect the electrical link from both underhood storage unit lights.
  • Remove the carpet from the storage unit beneath the hood.
  • Remove the underhood storage unit's fasteners (x20) from the car.
  • Remove the vehicle's underhood storage compartment.
  • Remove the old HEPA filter from the duct and discard it.
  • Place the new HEPA filter so that it is held in place by the duct.
  • Place the underhood storage unit in place and then tighten the fasteners (x2) that secure it:
    • 6 fasteners (7 Nm)
    • 4 fasteners (7 Nm)
    • 10 fasteners (4 Nm)
  • Put the carpet back into the storage unit under the hood.
