Why not post the question in a S series thread instead of a L series thread. Next if you know it has a small hole you must have opened the airbox to find that imperfection. You should have changed it at that time.

well i just bought the car today for 100 bucks, turned it on, and it was leaking a steady stream of tranny fluid from the filter. didnt have to remove the airbox to notice it. and the reason i didnt post it in an S series thread, was cause I thought it was the L series. it's a 1999 SL i believe. 4 door auto.

Guess you should have said what filter you wanted to change.

"I need to replace the filter on my 1999 SL1, it has a small hole. does anyone have a video they could link me to? or any tips on the removal?

If it's a SL,SL1,or SL2 it's then an S-Series.

The L Series is not the same car in any way. It's always good to know what kind of car you have.

i barely know anything about this car to be honest haha old lady is getting rid of it for 100 bucks, really good condition, minus this small problem. had to leave it at her place.

the car is my mothers, she bought it, i'm fixing it. so i only know its green, 4 door, 1999 and not the one in the link you sent me haha i posted it in here because i seen L-Series, thinking I have an SL, that was L series.

I'm just wondering how i go about replacing it, or is it just take off old one and put on the new one? i can remove my airbox and access the filter easily.

The tranny and oil filter both come off the same way. You turn them CCW till they are off and in your hard. 1999 then it can not be an L series.
