Yanmar 40hp 3JH5E AIR FILTER

The YANMAR maint manual refers to the AIR FILTER to be cleaned/changed at regular intervals.
My engines 2010 models only have a large grey plastic box attached. I have removed&inspected them. I could not see any filter material!
Any advice?

Re: Yanmar 40hp 3JH5E AIR FILTER

There isn't an air filter. My 4JH2E also instructs to clean the air filter, but it is just an air silencer with what I would loosely call a "filter". Looks like this:

however, the old one looked even less like a filter, I'll try to find a picture of it
