    How do you do it? I should have waited till I had more light, but I cracked the outside plastic around the air intake with a screw driver... DOH :eek:

    I am so OCD, I actually had trouble sleeping because I did that LOL I KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG OMGGG. Anyway, how do you take that bastard out? Mine almost appears to be glued LOL

    isnt the prefilter on the side before the actual filter? hence the name "pre filter" if it has a little crack then it wont really hurt anything, your normal air filter will still do its job, just use some silicone to patch it up if you want
