Thanks for the help. Much appreciated. I actually only bought the Pro Dry S 3 Layer, the one you are showing in the pic. I'm hoping it works out nicely.@AG30
Not sure if any other guys with the 2.0 have adopted the afe as of yet.. With that said, you may have to just do the deed blindly in regard to your install of the AFE.
I run an aFe Power 31-10280 Performance Air Filter ... the flat panel dry air filter. Actually, just cleaned it again yesterday. I'm real happy with the filter. Cleans up easily and dries out very fast after cleaning.
About your install... You don't need to loosen the band clamp, just fully loosen the screws that secure the air filter housing cover. After they are all loosened, gently pull up on the filter cover and it will rise... you may have to go back and loosen more one of the screws. Anyway, the housing cover will now be able to be lifted up just enough to slide out the old, to get a vacuum nozzle to vacuum out any debris in the housing and to slide in the new filter in....then drop down the cover and refasten the screws..
IF, if say you bought the cone shaped afe or you have trouble getting the cover up enough on hyour 2.0, do know that those 2 hoses you asked about are quick disconnect hoses. Press in firmly on the light colored tab on the hose and put gently but firmly and the hose disconnects. The press/click right back on.
IF you bought the cone shaped afe, you will have to loosen the band clamp and the screws and physically remove the air box cover in order to get the cone shapped afe in.
