Cleaning your Pro 5 Cotton Gauze Oiled Filter is Easy

One of the benefits of using a Pro5 Oiled filter is that you can clean and reuse the cotton gauze filter. Depending on driving and environmental conditions; the filter will become caked with dirt and require cleaning. A two-stage filter recharger kit with cleaner and oil is required. It is recommended to clean the filter on your Volant Intake at least two times a year. Replacement filters are available through Volant. Also, if you experience a sudden decrease in mileage or engine performance, the filter will need to be cleaned.

  • 1. Remove

    Remove the Pro-5 filter from your air intake and tap it on a hard surface to remove any loose dirt.

  • 2. Spray

    Liberally spray the filter with filter cleaner and allow it to soak in for about 10 minutes. Avoid petroleum based products because they will soften and destroy sealing edges.

  • 3. Rinse

    Rinse off the dirt from the inside of the filter out. Never use high pressure nozzles or air; they could tear and distort the cotton gauze media.

  • 4. Dry

    Allow the filter to air dry in a clean area. Never use applied heat or an air vent to dry the filter. Do NOT reinstall a wet or damp filter. The oiled filter must be completely dry before it is installed.

  • 5. Oil

    Using air filter oil, apply a thin coating to each pleat. The oil will soak into the pleat and after 20 minutes you will see areas that need to be touched up with more oil.
