This is my first post. I drive a 2002 Honda Civic LX. In the last few months, I have decided to become more auto savvy with the intention of doing basic repairs myself.
I ran into a problem trying to change the air cleaner. The screws for the air cleaner cover were rusted and wouldn't come out. They would just spin in place when I would try to get them out with my ratchet. Anyway, I did get the cover off after breaking the plastic on both the cover and the case set (the bottom part). I ordered replacement screws and an air cleaner cover and case from Majestic Honda
. (The threads on the screws were gone, and a few fused into case's metal holes. I read that this was common since the engine's heat over time can do that.)
I took off the bolts for the case. In fact, they came off easy. But the case still won't come off. I know it has to be disconnected from the hoses (i.e. the tube breather and the grommet on the left. I did manage to remove the sensor assembly on the right without destroying it.
But is there something else I'm missing?
Here is a photo I took a few days ago
and uploaded to Image Shack. (Note I removed the screw in the middle today. I previously removed the bolts, as I wrote.)
Thanks in advance.
