Customer Question
It’s time to change...

It’s time to change the oil air separator filter and fluid on my 300HHAF towable compressor. Do I need to remove th ecanopy (top of housing) of compressor to get open the sump tank? Do I add fluid from the top plug near the looking glass area.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It’s a Sullair 300HHAF compressor, but I don’t have the serial number handy.

Removing the canopy gives you much more room to work, but the separator cap can be removed without removing the canopy. And yes, oil fill is through the plug you mention.
