Default Changing Engine Air Filter Tip

I'm sure you have been frustrated if you lost air box screws when changing the air filter on your Cherokee KL 3.2 engine. The air box sits low and is jammed in do as to make it easy to drop screws, which disappear somewhere? I have read that you should place a cloth under where the screws mount to catch them if you drop them. I discovered a good way to reattach the screws, slightly screw in the screws to the top housing so that they won't fall out them place air box coiver on the bottom and tighten the screws. Works great.

PS: New screws cost about $2 each from your friendly Jeep Dealer.

You could also drop the screws into the cover and then push a small piece of masking tape over the threads to keep the screws from falling out.

You can always just get an AFE intake and not have to worry with the BS factory airbox

I got an AFE drop-in panel filter. Dry no oil, and I should not have to clean very often. We don't drive much and did not want to spend enough to get a cold air intake
