I figured I would save some time and money changing the air filter on my 2007 Four Winds Magellan with a 2006 F53 chassis, 6.8 liter V10.
1) Got the hood opened up.
2) Disconnect Mass Air flow sensor connector from the air cleaner housing lid.
3) Loosen air cleaner outlet pipe-to-air cleaner housing lid clamp.
4) Disconnect air cleaner outlet pipe from air cleaner housing lid......NOT
I have been unable to budge the air cleaner outlet pipe. It does not move up or down or back or right or left.
Disconnecting the 3 air cleaner lid-to-air cleaner base clamps only allows me to raise the lid about an inch in the front only. To change the filter the lid needs to be raised up a few inches and that means getting it off the outlet pipe.
