1988 Toyota Supra Turbo Air Filter Installation Instructions

Changing filters and fluids in your vehicle can seem intimidating. Luckily, this doesn't need to be the case. With some practice and patience, you can change your own air filter and save money you would otherwise be giving to a garage.

Tools Used: Air filter (see owner's manual for correct specifications), Bolt driver or small adjustable wrench, Rags

Install Air Filter

Locate the air cleaner assembly. On the 1988 Supra Turbo, it is on the front left side under the hood, directly behind the washer fluid reservoir.

Unfasten the clips on the top of the air cleaner housing. Disconnect the wiring connector, then use a wrench or bolt driver to remove the hose clamp and unbolt the brace. Lift off the top of the air cleaner housing.

Remove the old air filter element and clean it with compressed air, or have a new one ready to replace it.

Clean the filter case with a rag. Place the filter into the air box.

Put the cover over the air filter and connect the clips. Reconnect the brace and the hose clamp, and reattach the wiring connector.

Tips & Warnings

The filter element used on the Supra Turbo is a dry, disposable type. Do not use one that has been washed or oiled. Refer to your owner's manual for the proper size.

Make sure the new air filter is right-side-up and is seated properly. An incorrectly seated air filter will allow unfiltered air to seep into the motor.
