Replacing Air Filter

I just replaced my air filter in my 2010 Civic. The problem I'm having is that it's hard get the back right clip back in. I have big hands. Do any of you have any problems getting the last clip back onto the air filter box?

It's pretty stiff. Try doing that clip first.

I don't think that would make a difference. I don't see how the guys who changed my oil could put that thing on effortlessly. Any tips or tools that could put it back on? I can do the rest just fine.

Are you 100% sure the cover is flush with the base (no gap). Sometimes it is a pain to get it lined up correctly. Only other suggestion is to put on some heavy duty gloves and give it a good pull.

I'm see there is no gap, I can see it clearly. Might have to give this another go today. Would it do anything if I just left that last clip undone?

I wouldn't go without all clips on.

If you go without all clips that would leave a chamce for there not to be a tight seal, which means evil wizards amd magical dust bunnies can get into your engine.

Try putting the clip on by pressing upward on the very bottom of it instead of pulling on the top.

Put gloves on one hand and reach down and grab your 00 with the other. Put some man behind it.
