Introduzione

The air filter plays an important role in your engine by keeping dirt, dust, and other debris out of the internal workings of the engine. Because of that, the air filter needs replaced about every 10,000 to 15,000 miles, depending on the driving conditions.

Note: This guide uses a 4.8L V8 engine on a 2007 Silverado to demonstrate the procedure. The air filter size may vary depending on the size of the engine.

  4. The airbox cover is fastened down with four Torx T25 screws. Remove each one with a Torx T25 screwdriver. The front right screw is slightly hidden and a bit difficult to reach. You'll need to slide your screwdriver in between radiator hoses in order to reach it.

  5. Grab onto one of the corners on the left side of the airbox cover and pull it up to reveal the air filter inside the airbox. The airbox cover will still be attached to the air intake hose.
