RANGER 800 Air Filter Replacement

Always clean all dirt and debris away from the airbox area before servicing the air filter on your Polaris RANGER. Always wear safety glasses and nitrile gloves. Always change the air filter at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart in your Owner's Manual. Service the air filter more frequently if the vehicle is operated in wet conditions or at high throttle openings for extended periods.

To replace the air filter on your RANGER 800, RANGER 800 XP, RANGER 800 HD or RANGER CREW 800, follow these steps:

1. Place the transmission in PARK.

2. Lift the cargo box to access the airbox.

3. Clean any dirt or debris from the airbox area.

4. Remove the airbox cover and inspect the gasket. It should adhere tightly to the cover and seal all the way around.

5. Remove the air filter. Tip: Grasp the filter end to prevent damage to the filter paper.

6. Inspect the air filter and replace if necessary. Do not attempt to clean the main element.
