Post How To Change A Lag I V6 Air Filter*Pics*

If you look in the renault handbook for an air filter change on a Lag I V6 it'll refer you to your local Renault Dealer....who would probably charge you 80 for something that would take you 10 minutes to do yourself.

So, here's the how to;
  • Loosen the two Jubilee Clips that are circled in red in photo 1 and carefully wiggle the smaller hose on the right off of it's plug.
  • Carefully 'wiggle' the breather hose, circled in blue, off of it's plug on the side of the air intake pipe.
  • Unclip the electrical connector, circled in purple.
  • Unscrew the seven [Phillips] screws, circled in green. The topmost screw is a biatch as it sits directly underneath the intake tube, it can be got to but you will probably need a 'bendy' extension (photo 3).
Once the above is done, you should be able to take hold of the top of the air filter housing and manover it away from the bottom section. You will then be left with a sight such as that in photo 2, hopefully with an air filter there though (I'd already taken mine out). You may want to take this opportunity to remove any bits and pieces from the housing.

You are then able to fit the new filter.

Be aware, though, when replacing the air filter housing in reverse of the above instructions, that you ensure the rubber edge to the new filter does not catch against the edge of the filter housing thus not giving an air tight fit.

Hopefully this may help someone and save 'em a few pennies as well
