I can tell you how to replace the air filter without any photos. It's very easy. Pop the hood and look at the engine. To the driver's side of the engine, at the front,you will see the cover (black plastic type material) for the air filter. It has TORX HEAD screws holding it down. Remove these screws and lift up the cover and you will see it. Lift UP and OUT from the front. Notice how the "tab" on the filter fits down in the housing and holds it in place, so when you put the new one back in, it's the same way. Simple. Take the time to vacuum out the housing where the filter sits while you're in there. There may be all kinds of junk in there. Put the cover back on and don't over tighten the screws. Snug is fine.
