Going off of memory here, but I believe you just need to make sure the left side is snug then snap the right side in... but I could be very, very wrong .

EDIT:

Ok, I think that is the Honda Pilot I'm thinking of. I just took a look at the pics on the first page and what I do is try to get the bottom lined up, then make sure the filter is where it needs to be, then try to close the top. It takes me a few tries everytime I'm in there.

Mods: Black Muffler, Rallye Spoiler
Mods (Just a matter of time): Intake Nozzle Mod, Upper/Lower Grille Inserts
Mods (Still Debating): Remove Door Pillar Black Tape, Murchison 2" lift + bigger tires, Body Colored Hatch Facasia + Black Jeep badges, Rallye Body Kit

Thanks! Whats odd is just had it at dealer yesterday for an oil change, and got them to warrenty the battery ... noticed it was running louder than usual, and saw the box wasnt quite sealedup after they musta checked it. I'll toy with it again later after i pull the baffler. About to hit 36k on this baby!

popped out the baffler, and put the battery cover back on, PITA to put the air box back together for whatever reason. But i do notice a little more power there. Now to fabricate something to eliminate the batt cover ( afraid to leave it open) and all will be well...
thanks all!

well i drove to the States the past long weekend, it was an 8 hour trip. i removed the battery cover part but i did not remove the 2nd piece. i did notice a change in sound and it seems to accelerate a little bit more quickly. but i also got an oil change and changed my filter for my long drive so that might have been the reason too. my compass gets 400km in the city (60km). driving on the highway i also got 400km i don't know if this means the mod made fuel economy worst, but i have to also factor in i was going 60 to 75mph and i had the a/c on cuz i was the only driver and it was the only thing that kept me awake. i am only halfway through the mod though maybe if i take off the second piece i'll get different results

I am running stock. Note earlier modders comments. The noise level increases noticeably. This is not the quietest engine as it is.

If there is an air restriction it would affect millage as well. However if not only a large diameter intake (ram - ing more air in) ram air will make a detectable difference and improve fuel economy as well. I doubt the design would be that restricted since its the simplest thing for them to do to increase MPG.

I am stock on that as well.

I don't know if any of you guys have taken a look at the 2011, but the air box is a lot different. I noticed on Shecky's that the airbox opens up sideways and had that little shroud inside to direct air to the back of the box. The 2011 does not have that shroud and the box opens up from the top and has a couple of plug things on top with a warning to not take them off.

Here is a picture of it I found online. 2011 Jeep Compass Engine Photo 10

I have not taken mine apart yet, but I did remove the intake and I have not really noticed any difference in the take off, but it does sound louder and like it has a bigger engine.

I wonder how the performance of the older Compass is to the new?

Do you mean the little shroud inside the air filter chamber or the assembly that takes in air from under the hood and goes over the battery?

That shroud does not exist on the 2011's.

the assembly that takes in air from under the hood and goes over the battery...that's the part that's being removed in this post that i am questioning. i figure that thing prevents stuff getting into the filter, no?

Water won't go up and the intake is usually where it cannot get the full ram air type of force where it will even enter the intake. As for the cables and connectors above the air box mentioned. Jeep now for some reason chose to move the PCM (computer) on top. maybe to to keep modders from using K&N intakes LOL. There has been a lot of discussion in auto forums on K&N and most agree that those oil filters allow more dust and grit into the engine. If you're keeping it for a long time or high millage its not the way to got in my opinion.

if i use the mopar intake...would that help? I didnt know aftermarket intakes let in more dirt that would damage the engine.. i thought they were just better filters with a noisemaker attached to it.

My opinion install AEM dry cone air filter in the OEM air box like I done.

Have you noticed a difference in performance or anything and what year Compass do you have? I think the air filters are different on the newer Compass' than the older ones.

I test drove a 2011 a few months back now and did not find the performance better than mine. In fact I would say it was a tad noisier engine. Maybe because of the different air box. I was curious and wanted to see visually if there were any engineering improvements. Other than the obvious skin I couldn't see any other changes. Now whether it gets better millage that something else. Mine in soso and nowhere near the advertised ratings.

So if there are not any changes other than the front fascia for the most part, that means that I could get a catback exhaust for the older compass and it should work just fine? I wonder if the Rally body kit would fit the 2011?

I have been averaging about 26mpg. Mostly backwoods country driving at 55mph and some city driving.

the engine is the exact same, so there isnt any more performance. the Cold ain intake kits will not work unless you relocate the ECM that is attached to the 2011 airbox. Rallye body kit will definetly not work in the front due to the new look. as for the sides and rear i am not sure, but why put skirts and a rear bumper on without the front bumper. And as for exhaust it would depend on the rear bumper, they changed the shape of it and it seems to come down a bit further, you would have to get under a new one and an older one and measure spacing between the muffler and bumper, then you could judge if a cat-back exhaust kit would be able to fit.
