Removing air filter in F250

I'm at the end of my rope. Trying to save a few pennies by changing my oil and air filter myself, but I can't seem to remove the air filter. I have the MAF disconnected and the coolant reservoir loosened up, and the intake hose loosened, but I can't get the filter to break loose from the two grommets on the bottom side.

I've heard they can be difficult to remove. If anyone can offer assistance on how to get it out of there, I would greatly appreciate it.

when i change them at work, i take off the coolant hose that goes over the intake tube...it will dribble a little coolant but not enough to worry about. disconnect the maf....carefully take the restriction gauge off the back of the housing, loosin the hose clamp where the hard plastic meets the rubber, and take the filter out with the front and back peices attatched. this gives you the hard plastic tube to grab onto and pull with.....they require quite a bit of force sometimes......then put it all together with the new filter and slide it back in in reverse order...........Marc

K&n

I would not buy a K&N unless you want to trash your turbo. If you get the K&N go with a better filter. I just bought and installed the AFE Magnum Force Stage II intake and it is very nice.

I was also wondering the same, even when I had my stock intake, the filter was easily accessable???

stock intake

on the 05 and 06's you have to remove the entire intake to get the filter out easily. the filter is sandwiched between the front of the intake and rear and is clipped on the bottom and latched on the top. It is a major pain in the a$$. That is why I bought the AFE as you simply remove the lid and loosen the filters hose clamp to remove and clean the filter.
