Cleaning your Volant air filter is easy. Just follow the steps below and you're Volant air filter will be clean in no time!
Step 1. APPLY CLEANER:
Spray Volant Air Filter Cleaner onto entire surface area of the Volant air filter until it completely saturates the pleated material. Allow Volant Filter Cleaner to soak into the pleats of the air filter for 10 minutes to loosen the
dirt. Do not let cleaner dry on air filter.
Step 2. RINSE: Rinse off air filter with cool low-pressure water. Allow gravity to flush dirt out
of air filter by applying water to the clean side (inside) of the filter; up and down the
length of the pleats.
Continue to rinse the filter until all traces of cleaner are gone. If the filter is
extremely dirty it may be necessary to repeat steps 1 and If there are spots of dirt remaining on the filter, spray each spot directly with cleaner, allow a few minutes for it to soak and repeat rinsing step.
Step 3. DRY: After rinsing, gently shake off excess water and allow filter to dry naturally. Do not proceed to the oiling step until the filter is completely dry.
Step 4. OILING: Apply Volant Air Filter Oil liberally to the dirty side (outside) of the filter only. This will
allow for a visual reference of complete coverage.
A. If using a squeeze bottle, squeeze bead of oil along the crown of
each pleat using the lip on the squeeze bottle tip as a guide. If using a aerosol spray, spray an even amount of oil along the crown of each pleat. Wait 20 minutes for the oil to be absorbed into the filter media. Inspect the
clean side of the filter for any areas that are lighter in color. Touch up these areas in the media by applying oil to the dirty side of the filter. Continue oiling procedure until there is an even red (or blue if your filter is blue) color over the entire surface of
the clean and dirty side of filter. BE SURE NOT TO OVEROIL THE FILTER. The filter should not be soaked or dripping. Over oiling your filter can cause your mass air flow sensor to foul and turn on your check engine light.
Step 5. FILTER INSTALLATION: Before reinstalling filter back into vehicle, inspect it for damage. Also be careful to fully tighten and seal your Volant air filter so it cannot come off or allow unfiltered air into the system.
Your Volant air filter is now oiled and ready for use. Enjoy!
