How To Clean Hks Air Filter

HKS air filters are one of the most popular types of air filters. They are relatively easy to clean, but there are a few things that you should know in order to keep your filter functioning properly. To begin with, always use the correct fluid for your filter. Make sure that you purchase the correct fluid for your vehicle and use it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Secondly, make sure that you clean your filter regularly. Use a mild solvent such as soap and water or a quality automotive air filter cleaner. Finally, never place your filter in direct sunlight or near heat sources.

Materials Needed

To clean an HKS air filter, you will need the following materials:
-HKS air filter
-Rubber band
-Liquor or cleaner
-Straw
-Bucket
– Rinse water
1. Remove the air filter cover.
2. Insert a rubber band around the circumference of the filter and carefully pluck it off. Do not twist or damage the filter while removing it. Old dust and debris may have built up around the edges of the filter, so it is important to grab all of it with the rubber band as you remove it. Keep the rubber band aside for later use.
3. Pour liquor or cleaner into a bucket and fill it halfway up with cold water. Submerge the air filter in the liquid and allow it to soak for about 10 minutes.
4. After soaking, gently pour clean water over the soaked filter, rinse off the liquid, and gentle shake off any excess water before replacing the cover on the air filter housing.
5. Hang up the air filtration system after ensuring that all parts are thoroughly dry before putting back into service!
