Hi
Could someone advise me how to remove the air filter box so I can change the air filter. Have removed the front two screws but it is held at the back.

Hi

Make sure the hose from the box to the throttle body is disconnected and the hose to the grille on the car.

Pul it up hard and try not to smack yourself in the face.

There are 8-12 torx screws to remove underneath to access the air filter.

DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THEM when refitting as they will wreck the threads and just turn all day.

Thanks Jamie, I hoped it was similar to my clio so managed to get it off not long after I posted the question. Cheers, John
