- After locating it remove the casing and see how the filter is fit inside it. It is important to note the directions of the filter. Make a note of the directions of the filter and remove it.
- After removing it insert the new filter the same way, the old one was fit in the same direction. You will see that it will be perfectly fit touching the edges.
