i also knew nothin about my astra when had it but with the help of the forums i was able to take apart and clean the egr an put back together (part of the engine) take the whole interior circuit boards out soldered off SMDs and put on new ones, fit tuning boxes and the easisst thing i ever done was replace my air filter with KN. my advice is no1 can mess up an air filer, screw off screw back on...yeah that will ruin my car... :rolleyes:



Good Lord!.Is this still ongoing? ok, tell you what, spank my bum for having an opinion!
NO ONE said you would ruin your car by messing up an air filter. Now hopefully that will put it to rest.

Exactly my point. What can he damage theres nothing there other than a lid and a filter. There no need to be so patronising with him for simply checking where it is. Worst that can happen is he drops one of the screws. Even experienced mechanics do that from time to time.



My point is , "if someone has NO idea what "that big plastic" box is, how the h*ll do you expect him to be able to do anything on his car! ( purchase a manual first )
And to quote smquis last post " what is there to understand about an air filter"............ er like where it is situated in the first place in that "big black plastic box" It's your car, you can fiddle with what you like, this is a forum and we are all allowed to have our opinions and mine is if you don't know what your doing, don't fiddle with it. I don't think that was patronising, it was my opinion and advice. ( if it aint broke, don't fix it )

In reply to sierra yanky's post, you are absolutely right about a chimp being able to do it, my point is if he is not confident enough and knackers something up he could end up paying more than he intended in the first place. That in my opinion would have been obvious! Then again most would get a haynes manual if they're going to do their own repairs rather than steaming into things they don't understand. Sarcasm no, advice yes!
