Uni filter cleaning

I got my new uni air filter and watched a video on YouTube in how to properly clean it. It showed the guy taking the cage out and he had the red and yellow foams separate. It seems like the foams are bonded together on mine. You can actually see where it is. Am I suppose to pull them apart to clean it?

They will seperate after about 5 or 6 washes, please don't force them apart.

I use Twin Air kit to wash mine.http://www.twinair.com/worldwide/twi...ning-procedure

I watched a few of them, I didn't realize that there was a filter with a removable cage and one without a removable cage. They both need to cleaned differently but mine has a removable cage and the yellow and red foam is bonded together so I clean them both at once .

They are a different color inside like you said, but so far my foam part is still one piece. Or at least still attached, I'd think when it separates time to toss it, but idk???

That sounds right I personally don't think they will separate as long as you clean it right
