Part # PHE000050 Replacing Air Filter On Range Rover Full Size (L322) 2003-2005, 8-Cylinder Gasoline, North American SpecificationHi I'm Doug, your tech support representative here at Atlantic British. In this video we're going to touch on one of the kits we have available for the 2003 to 2005 Full Size Range Rover, also now as the L322. That's part of our maintenance and repair academy. What this kit is is the air filter replacement for your vehicle, this is obviously the 4.4 V8 BMW and this filter will come in this kit, part number PHE000050. And this sheet is available on our website. You can download it and print it so you have it available. This gives you all of the other repair and maintenance programs that we have available for your vehicle. Now this is something that is recommended every 45,000 miles. This is a double layer filter. You'll see you have an outer sheet along with an inner paper filter. Again, as with any air filter, it depends on what type of driving that you do, or the area that you drive in. Obviously high dust, high pollen areas you want to change these on a more regular basis. And again it's good to check them every 30,000 miles or so. So, this is the kit we have available. Now I'm going to show you how to install it in your Full Size Range Rover. Okay, so, your air filter is located in this canister right here. This will be in front corner of the passenger side of your vehicle. You'll see it's a relatively large cap. It's held down with 4 snap clips along with 2 more clips that hold the mass air flow sensor and your intake tube on. And then you also have a breather hose here on the front. Now you may find, and I found, some models, depending on the year of the vehicle, may or may not have this. But it's good this is here. We'll show you how to remove that. So, that's probably going to be the first place you want to go. What you have is a squeeze tab connector on there. And, I prefer water pumps, but you can use even a pair of slip joint pliers or whatever. And you can give that a little squeeze and what that does is raises the opposite corner so it should be easy to disconnect. And you get in behind it with a screw driver. And we slip that right off. Pop your snaps at the mass airflow sensor. Now, be careful on this because when you take this out, as you can see it's relatively tight. This always happens. There's a big O ring in there that acts as a seal. Keep tabs on this. If you have a dry silicone, or even just the oils from your fingers will help. But, make sure you hold on to this. Don't rip it. Check it for rips. Check it for cracks. If you do, and you reuse it, you could end up with an air leak that could show up later on, kicking your check engine light on for a lean run condition. So you want to make sure that's sealed. Plus you can also end up bring in dirt, ingesting dirt and whatnot in past the filter which will get on the mass airflow sensor, can also cause runability issues. So we'll push that off to the side for a little bit. And then you have your 4 clips at the halfway point, right about the middle of the canister. And definitely a long, thin screw driver like this makes it a lot easier to access. Lift that straight up and out. Now, 1st thing to do, you look at the orientation of your filter. You can see the open end is at the top. Closed end at the bottom. You simply reach in and lift. And you can see with the preliminary filter, or the cloth on the outside, how much that holds along with the paper filter on the inside. It's quite a large filter. That's why you find that the recommendations for the mileage are a little bit longer than you normally see on most vehicles. But these do need checked on a regular basis. When these get partially clogged it can just take your fuel economy and put it in the dumper. It's just not going to give you good fuel economy or performance. This is a critical part. So, you get your new component and youre going to set that right down inside. Again remember your open area was up top. And it's a bit of a tight fit but you can get that back down in there. You put your canister top down inside. Now there's some notches on there that locate it. So you want to make sure that youre fully, fully seated. And you can get to 2 of the clips without the crew driver. Both the inside and outside clips. And that at least gets it seated in place. And then you can use your long screw driver to reinstall the 2 harder clips. They are definitely harder to get at. Just a little tip. I find this front clip sometimes can be really hard to get at. Especially with this hose in the way. I have a long tool. I got this also from my local tool supplier. It's about 13 inches long with a 90 degree tip on it. No these little snap clips sort of have a hook on the top of them which you can then get to with this 90 degree end. Lift, and pop in. Definitely a time saver when it comes to installing that front seal. So if you get the opportunity this is the ideal tool for doing this job. So now we've got the canister top in place. We're going to pop that hose over in there. And again actually you can use the 90 degree tool because then you can get in behind it. And what you want to do is listen for a little click and then you know your hose is in place. Okay, so, lube up our oil ring a little bit. Like I said you can use the oil from your fingers or a nice silicone spray. You got some notches built into this air filter housing. You want to make sure you put that O ring back in place. Making sure it's fully seated. Pull that together with your fingers. Put your clips on and there you go. Your air filter has been installed. So, when you're ready to change the air filter over on your L322, 2003 to 2005 with the BMW engine, youre going to call any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. Thanks for watching.
