This may come across as a stupid question, but do you have to take the front bumper off when you change or clean the filter of a CAI. I know that you have to cut and remove the bumper during installation.Thanks for the input.
You will have to turn your wheels all the way to one side to make room for your hands to fit. Pop off a few of those plastic clips from the wheel well plastics, and pull the wheel well plastic out of the way so you can reach the filter. The only thing I had to cut was the long rubber boot on the CAI filter itself. It was so damn long that I could not remove the filter without trimming a few inches off of the end of it (this took a while with a razor, and was annoying as hell). Anyone else have to do this?
