The air filter is in the large plastic cover that covers the engine.
1. Remove MAP sensor connector ( slightly hidden under the front center edge of the housing. Wiggle slightly and pull straight out).
2, Loosen (but don't remove) the large hose clamps on the passenger side and center of the housing, It's a tight fit for the hands on the passenger side and the head of the clamp is facing away from you. The front center hose is stiff, but pliable, so take your time.
3. The air filter housing was designed as a snap in with rubber grommets. A firm steady pull with the front passenger side will show you how much effort it will take to pull it free. Do each of the remaining two separately. The housing will be free to remove from the vehicle.
4. On a clear area, turn the housing over and loosen the seven torx type screws (they will not come completely off, so as not to lose them). Pull the cover off. Remove the old filter and replace with your new one. Align the cover and snug the screws back in.
5. Reassembly requires lining up those rubber grommets to the mounting studs.... take your time.... all that is needed is a firm downward push to seat them.
6. Reattach the large hose clamps and remember to plug in the MAP sensor (you'll get an "check engine" light if you forget.

Hope this helps.

How do I get to the air filter to replace it?

SOURCE: 2007 air filter replacement

The headlight assembly is accessed from inside the fender well. There are two pop out plastic rivets and a small (4mm? head) body screw that secure the fender liner to the fender. Those need to be removed. Pull the fender liner back enough to work your arm into the fender. Locate the wiring to the headlight and grasp the plug. Rotate it to the left until the bulb is free of the reflector. Pull the lamp and wiring out from behind the fender liner. Remove the bad bulb. There is a release tab on the plug. Insert the new bulb into the plug. DO NOT touch the bulb glass. The oil from your skin can cause the bulb to explode when it gets hot. Hold the plug and work the bulb and wiring back to the original position. It is a little easier to look through the headlight lens as you work the bulb back into the reflector. Turn the plug to the right until it is properly seated. Replace the two pop out rivets and the body screw.

You should replace the headlights in pairs. I didn't and the right bulb went out in a couple more weeks when the weather was much worse. The right bulb was more of a pain to replace than the left, probably because I am right handed.

Hope this helps.

It's inside of the plastic cover on top of the engine. You'll need to remove the assembly. First lift the rear to loosen it from the stud. Loosen the clamps to remove the ducts and pcv tube. Disconnect the electrical connector. Now you can tip the assembly over and remove the screws to separated the halves and replace the paper element.

The EGR valve is not likely to cause the issue you describe. The EGR is an exhaust gas recirculation valve. Because of the heat of the exhaust gasses involved, if oil were to get into the EGR passage, it would harden and turn ot carbon deposits. Your most likely candidate is the PCV valve, generally located on the valve cover.
