Kit # ESR4238 Air Filter Replacement on Discovery Series II, 1999 - 2004, 8-Cylinder Gasoline, North American SpecificationsHi I'm Doug, your tech support representative for Atlantic British, and in this video we are going to introduce you to the air filter replacement for your 1999 to 2004 Discovery 2 with your BOSCH 4 liter or 4.6 engine. This is part of our repair and maintenance academy. And you will find in our downloadable and printable list that you can get from our website. This would be Kit # D. Part # ESR4238. What will be included is an air filter, equivalent to original equipment. Now just as a quick note, this is a wearable item. They are recommended to be changed every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If you are in an area of high dust, dusty roads, you so some more off-roading, you probably want to change them more often. Changing an air filter can make a huge difference in the performance of your vehicle and your fuel economy, so it's something you will definitely want to consider. Now in a minute we'll show you how to install this. So now you've seen the kit that we offer, which is our air filter. We're going to show you how to replace this. This is on your Discovery 2 with a BOSCH engine. The air filter sits directly under this box which is on the driver's side, front corner. And there's nothing more than 4 clips. You have 2 here that connect you to your intake tube. You're going to unclip and fold back. There's another right here on top. Simply push the tab away from the box, that will release and then the bottom clip you will reach under, lift and release. Same style clip as what you have on the intakes. Just simply give a wiggle up and down. This is on an accordion so that you can actually move this back. You'll fold this up. And now you have access to your air filter. And we can see this is normal. This is after about 10,000 to 14,000 miles. You can see you have a fair amount of dirt build up and whatnot. And all that dirt and all that dust will create a restriction that will affect both your engine performance and your fuel economy. So you want to keep a clean filter in there. Definitely do this on a regular basis. And again, if you're in a dry or dusty area you definitely want to do it even more than the recommended timeframe. So again, to reinstall, we're going to save that for another vehicle. Pop the filter in. Run your finger all the way down to make sure that the gasket is seated down inside the box. Start from upright. You have 2 hook clasps right here that are going to grab underneath these 2 arms. We're going to be up, clip in. Make sure you move your plastic vent line out of the way. Now again, be very careful with this plastic vent line. If you have an older vehicle and haven't replaced this, these get very brittle and have a tendency to snap at different areas. So you want to be very careful working around that plastic line. Slide your air tube back in place. Grab your clamp. Top clamp up top. And just bring that tab forward. And then your lower clamp down here. Simply set in place. Push down. Locked in and now you've changed your air filter. So again when you're ready to do this on your Disco 2 give a call to any of our knowledgeable salesman at 1-800-533-2210. They'll be happy to help you out. Thanks for watching.
