How’s it going everybody! Landan with Late Model Restoration. In this installment of LMR Basics, I’m going to give you a general idea on changing the air filter in your Mustang. I’ll be performing the work on this 92 Fox Body and will be using a genuine Motorcraft air filter.

Begin by locating the retaining clips on the air box lid. Unhook the clips and position the lid aside. Remove the old filter and properly dispose of it. Position the new filter into place in the correct orientation. Reinstall the lid and re-hook the clips. Give it a solid once over and it’s that easy.

Replacing an air filter can be accomplished by just about any one. We carry a wide selection of factory and aftermarket, stock-style high flow air filters for your 1979 to present Mustang. I would check the owner’s manual to see how often the filter needs to be changed. If you’re using a high-flow, washable and re-usable fitler; inspect it every oil change. Clean this filter per the manufacturer’s instruction with the appropriate filter cleaning kit.
