There's clips around the top of the carb. Pop the clips then remove the cover. Just slide the filter out then put your new one in. Now snap the cover back on. YAY!

They do make a k&n filter but it's really pointless...

Ok, so how do I remove this off the top of the carb? I am in the process of changing my vacuum lines and it would be 10 times easier if i could take that off until i was done. Thanks.

It is not exactly easy.. but anyway, Look around under the filter holder (that big black thing) and you should see how to do it.

It's been so long since I worked on my old 4af .. hmm I know that there is an emissions line that comes off of the cat and connects to the cover there It's a big hose u gotta disconnect that.. There might be a screw or 2 in the cover.. I can't really say I don't remember :(.. just fool around with it and yank on it.. u'll be able to figure out what you gotta do to get it off.. if it feels like it is really really held on there when u pull at it.. there is probably a few screws holding it on.

There is one small hose going to the valve cover. Pull that out and then you can twist the whole thing to the side. There is another larger hose going to the white part on the side of the black filter cover u might want to take off, but I have been able to work on the carb by just pulling the thing to the side w/o any screws.

There is that one hose like I said.. it comes up from the catylitic converter and connects to the under side of air filter tray.. once you remove that and obviously the nut in the center of the tray.. it comes right off.
