Remove engine plastic covers by taking out the 5mm allen key bolts,, then remove the pollen filter and cover on the bulkhead, under the filter there are 4 , 30torx bolts , remove these and remove plastic bulkhead, then remove the 5mm allen key bolts holding the air filter cover to the engine, then remove the cover , change filter ,

1, remove pollen filter cover,filter and the bottom of the pollen filter holder plastics (torx scrs). This is all located right under the bonnet grill/bottom of winscreen area.(Pollen filter will probably want changing)
2 remove engine and raditor cover plastics 5mm allen key.
Now on the left side top of engine you will see the black plastic air filter holder .
3 Undo ALL allen bolts, including the one at the back which you can only access by removing the pollen filter plastics.
4 Change filter and put it all back together again.
5 Crack open a can to reward yourself

Having just changed the air filter i have learnt that its very very important to make a note of how the filter housing is put together.it was murder trying to screw the 4 captured bolts back into their holes. you have to position the top of the housing correctly to begin with.the car is 5 years old and it was obvious that the filter had never been changed! i now know why.

CAUTION Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do NOT allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
There are two types of fittings used on fuel filter connections. The banjo fitting or union bolt type uses a bolt and two washers to prevent leakage between an eyelet and the filter. The flare fitting type uses no washers or bolts. It uses a thread interference pattern to make a tight connection.
Fig. Remove the union bolt and two gaskets, then disconnect the inlet hose from the fuel filter
CAUTION To avoid personal injury, remember that the fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Wear eye protection and observe no smoking/no open flame precautions. Have a dry powder fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.
