Help about air filter

Hi guys,

Just changed my engine air filter on my 08 is250 for the first time myself.

My only concern was that after replacing the filter I positioned the top part and put the clasps back on I noticed that the top cover is not flush with the bottom cover. What I mean is that there is a "lip" of sorts between the top and bottom covers. I stupidly did not check if this is how it normally is before I took it off so looking for input from you guys here.

Since this was the first time I have done this I was a bit concerned.

Thanks!

All the clasps closed properly. I just noticed the lip so wondered if anyone else noticed it too

Do you mean the top and bottom parts of the engine air filter have no lip? If you run your finger around the joint of the two parts is there a lip?

The clasps went back on so I am assuming this means I did it right? Would you mind checking on yours to see if there is a lip between upper and lower?
