How to Replace an Air Filter for a Snapper P2185020

The following instructions are for the Snapper 21″ Series 20 Steel Deck Walk Mower, which is for the model number P2185020. Before attempting to work on/with your equipment in any way, always refer to your owner’s manual for safety information.

  1. Note: Do not use pressurized air or solvents to clean the filter. Pressurized air can damage the filter and solvents will dissolve the filter.

  6. Assemble the dry pre-cleaner to the filter.
  7. Install the filter and pre-cleaner into the base. Make sure the filter fits securely in the base.
  8. Install the air filter cover and secure it with a fastener. Make sure the fastener is tight.
