Taking out the air filter unit?


Hi there

I'm trying to install a Kings 20 inch light bar to my T31 and it seems the best place to install the wire to the cab is through the loom under the glove box.

Spent ages looking and it seems the best spot as its a very tight fit everywhere, however I think I will need to take the air filter unit out. I've been trying to attempt this however get stuck.

After I take out the air filter out and detach the hose from the main air filter unit and intake, it still seems too tight a fit to go anywhere, I'm a bit stuck on how to progress. I can supply pics if anyone knows my problem

Cheers
Brad

Re: Taking out the air filter unit?


I remove the glovebox and then the large grommet is visible from the inside. Cut a section of straight wire from a coat hanger and sharpen one end to a sharp point using a bench grinder. Tape the wire you want to go through the grommet at the blunt end of the coat hanger (keeping it small so it can go through the grommet) and push it through the grommet from inside the car behind the glovebox. Using a good torch, shine it beside the air filter housing under the bonnet and you should see the coat hanger wire coming through. Grab it and carefully pull the wires through. I use this method and it works every time, and I have never had to remove the air filter housing. If its a wiring loom, you may need to disassemble the plug on the end, or if you must, cut it off and resolder it together once the wire is through the firewall. Just make sure the wires aren't live and watch the sharp point on the wire.

Re: Taking out the air filter unit?


Hey bmarx78.
I am NOT an administrator of this forum but have been a member for many years.
This forum asks that you introduce yourself in the "Introduction of new members" thread before posting qustions/suggestions etc into other forum threads.
This request to introduce yourself is stated when you first read about the forum etc.
This lets others know what model xtrail and series that you have so that questions that may relate specifically to your xtrail model/series can be answered correctly.
There are many forum members that are only too happy and willing to assist when questions are raised but adding your membership number and your model xtrail details to your signature on future posts sure helps to answer your question.

The Administrator of this forum will lock you post if the introduction is not made by you.
It is not a big ask so please simply introduce yourself in the appropriate thread now before Admin has the chance to review the latest posts.
This is not having a shot at you and the question you raise in your post is a valid question.

Cheers and we look forward to your introduction post.

p.s. Oh, and perhaps your question may have been better posted in the "INT/EXT Accessories & Mods" [sign in to see URL] members may view that thread than others. Many members only read posts in the topic headings they are interested in. This is another reason to include your xtrail model details in your post signature because not everyone will read the new members introduction posts.

cheers again
