The 2001 Renault Clio is equipped with an engine air filter that blocks airborne debris, dust and particles from entering the engine. Even a small amount of foreign material entering the engine through the air intake could cause damage. Renault recommends inspecting the engine air filter whenever the oil is changed and replacing when it is dirty. Replace the air filter at least once every 30,000 miles.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn off the engine. Open the bonnet.

  2. 2

    Lift the front of the plastic engine cover up to unhook it. Remove the engine cover.

  3. 3

    Pull on the locking tabs on the right side of the filter housing to open it. The air filter housing is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment.

  4. 4

    Lift up the air filter housing lid until there is enough room to reach in and extract the air filter.

  5. 5

    Grasp the end of the air filter. Pull the air filter up and bend it gently toward the windshield to enable it to clear the filter housing.
