If any metal particle enters the inlet pass, this may damage the engine.
When removing and installing the inlet system parts, cover the openings of the removed parts and engine openings. Use clean shop rags, gummed tape, or other suitable materials.
When installing the inlet system parts, check that no metal particles have entered the engine or the installed part. HANDLING OF HOSE CLAMPS Before removing the hose, check the clamp position so that you can restore it in the same way. Replace deformed or dented clamps with a new one. When reusing a hose, attach the clamp on the clamp track portion of the hose.
For a spring type clamp, you may want to spread the tabs slightly after installation by pushing in the direction of the arrow marks as shown in the illustration.
