Default Installing air filter

Just went out and bought an air filter for my 02 2.5RS.

Any tricks I should know about installing it? Is it pretty straightforward?

Its easy. Just make sure that you get the tabs back in place, on the bettom of the air box.

It's actually easier to take the air box out, install the filter, and put the box in. That way you guarantee you have a good seal. I tried to do it w/o taking the box out... arghhhhh... eventually got it back together but it took longer than if I would have just taken the airbox out.

Just my 2 cents....
