Pay attention to the air filter housing
The housing should not be cracked in any place, and the gaskets, clips and screws in the housing should not be damaged. It is also important to check the plastic air supply lines to the suction manifold. If any of the connections or other components of the housing are leaking, the filter will not function properly.

Remove dirt from the housing
After opening the housing of the filter, take a look at its bottom part. It is usually dirty, and impurities accumulate at the bottom. You can use a damp cloth to get rid of them. When removing the dirt, make sure it does not enter the part of the inlet system that leads to the engine.

Ensure that the gasket adheres securely to the housing
The tightness of the filter in the housing is crucial, therefore make sure the gasket firmly adheres to the housing and that it is has not been jammed in any way.
