Before you begin to change the Cub Cadet air filter on your zero-turn mower, turn machine off and give the engine a chance to cool. As a safety precaution, remove the ignition key and disconnect the spark plug ignition wire. This will prevent accidental ignition as you are changing the mower's air filter.

Step 1

Open the access door on the back of the engine and loosen the clamps on the Cub Cadet air filter hose.

With the mower's air filter now exposed, remove the old paper filter.

Place your new paper Cub Cadet air filter inside the zero-turn mower.

Step 5

Attach the clamps on the mower's air filter hose.

Step 6

At the back of the engine, reseal the access door.

Step 7

Once you reconnect the spark plug ignition wire, your zero-turn mower is ready to go.

Now that you understand how to change the Cub Cadet air filter in your zero-turn lawn mower, create a schedule to make it a part of your machine's regular maintenance.
