OK, today after I topped off my oil, I took the opportunity while the hood was up, to finally get around to getting at the air filter. I was curious what replacement we could get for it. Naturally, our user's manual is UTTERLY useless in this regard!!
The only thing the user's manual says is to 'buy a new filter and replace' (paraphrasing), uh yea...thanks..
No part #, NOTHING.
Even the instructions to get at the air filter are terrible. It says to just unclamp the 2 metal clips and you can remove the air filter. Not at all, you have to unscrew the clamp to the right of the MAF sensor to actually get the air filter out cleanly.
Anyways, I checked out the air filter, and on the side it said:
Denso MQeD, Made in Thailand, 1500A617
Of course, I tried googling this part #, nothing.
I tried going straight to Denso's website to look up the part #, again, nothing.
Can anyone find what to do with this part #?? Or are we stuck having to buy from the stealership??
