Part #: ESR1445 Replacing Air Filter On Discovery I, 1994 - 1999, 8-Cylinder Gasoline, North American Specifications
Hi I'm Doug. I'm your tech support representative here at Atlantic British. And we're going to introduce you to one of the maintenance and repair kits that we have for the Discovery 1, 1996 to 1999. This is the air filter kit which is actually a regular maintenance that you should be doing on your Land Rover. Definitely want to check the air filter on a regular basis. They can grossly affect your drivability, your fuel economy should they get dirty, plugged up. So you definitely want to keep an eye on them. So, what we have here is our kit number ESR1445. What you receive is 1 air filter that meets Land Rover specifications. Comes with the seal already built into the air filter just like the original. Now what I am going to do now is show you how to install your air filter and take care of this maintenance yourself. Alright. So, first thing - fender cover. You don't want to put any scratches or dings in your Land Rover so I always recommend put a cover down. It only takes a couple seconds. Should you not have any covers, we actually do offer these in our website catalog so you want to look at these we have them available in red and black. So, here is the air filter assembly that we showed you. And it's a simple matter of clips, 4 clips on the box cover itself and 2 that attach it to the mass airflow sensor and your air temperature sensor. The air temperature sensor has a little metal ring around where you can just wiggle and disconnect that. You can take a flat blade screw driver and grab the bottom of the clips. I recommend using a screw driver instead of your fingers because sometimes these clips can be a little on the tight side. They'll come up and snap your fingers and it doesn't feel good. Just grab the bottom loop and pull up. Same with the clips on the mass airflow sensor. You don't have to disconnect the mass airflow. Just leave it. Pull cover off. 2 things you want to notice on this air filter. One, it's obviously dirty. 2, it wasn't originally installed properly and you can see how it's pulled that down and it's drawing in dirt and whatnot down into the filter. Or actually this is going to filter from the bottom up. You can see this build up right here. This gets on this screen for the mass airflow sensor can directly affect the way that the vehicle performs. So, as you can see, we got our money's worth out of that one. Looks like we have a tenant. This is the first time I've pulled this cover off on this vehicle. So we obviously had a tenant in there as well. So, that's the other thing. You want to wipe out the box. Clean it out. Get any debris out of there. Maybe grab a shop vac, clean all that out of there. Secondly, when you put this back together and I noticed in on this one. There should be an O ring around this mass airflow sensor. So you want to make sure that the O ring is there. If you don't see it, check around, make sure it didn't drop off when you disconnected the top cover. If not, you want to get a replacement. And it's just a simple matter of when you put the new one in, set it in place. Make sure the gasket is fully set all around. And then just simply reinstall the top the way you took it off. Wiggle that around until you actually feel it seat down in place. And then it is just grab the top loop. As you can see where you have a little tab right there where the clamp grabs onto. Push straight down. Clamp straight down. And just do that all the way around. Mass airflow sensor - same thing. Clip into the hole that they have on the backside. Clamp it in. Don't forget to plug your sender back in. And that's it. You have an air filter. Now you can obviously with the way this one is plugged up, this was going to affect the way the vehicle ran. Definitely going to affect your fuel economy as well. With the price of gas these days you want to try and keep that as low as possible. So for a minimal amount of work, for a minimal amount of money, you can do a good maintenance on your vehicle. Do check your air filter on a regular basis. And again, when you're ready to change this over, just call any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. And thanks for watching.
