Polaris Ranger 800 Crew Air Filter Change

Air filters are responsible for filtering out all the dirt and debris that would otherwise enter your side-by-side’s engine. Not cleaning or replacing the air filter in your Polaris UTV regularly enough leads to poor performance, a worn engine and hefty repair bills. 

If you run your UTV in dusty or muddy environments often, you should check the air filter at least once after every 25 hours of use. Watch the video above and follow the steps below to change the air filter on a Polaris Ranger 800 Crew.
