But I'm havin a hard time putting the closing the cabin. It still shows a little of the air filter. Will that effect the car or the air filter? Appreciate your help

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Are you speaking of the Engine air filter?

Ok. Either you have the wrong air filter, it is in upside down, or you have the hinge incorrectly positioned. The hinge part is critical; you need to have it firmly in the correct position or the top of the filter box will not close down. You absolutely need to have the box closed and none of the air filter showing. This is very important. Try removing the filter and then closing the box. If it closes OK, re-examine the filter positioning. If it does not close OK with the filter out, the hinge side needs to be examined and set in the proper position. This is a very common issue, I myself have trouble with these boxes and I have been doing it for years. The hing side always gives me fits.
