After unclipping the airfilter housing, how do you get enough clearance to change the filter. It only moves a inch or so because the housing is connected to a large plastic ducting and I do not want to break anything. Any tips on this?

Air filter,hust unclip the metal clips around the housing.
Fuel filter,undo the bolt at the top, unclip the plastic pipes either side of the filter.
Prefill the new filter with fresh clean diesel, bolt in place then pump the black knob on top of the filter to prime. If the car will not start, release the plastic pipe nearest the front of the filter and pump until fuel comes out,then refit it.
Follow these steps to replace the Air Filter on your Toyota: 1) Turn off the car before changing the air filter. Don't start the car once the air filter has been removed, 2) Locate the box that houses the air filter. Look in the front driver's side, back corner under the hood for a rectangular-shaped black box. 3) Lift the lid and compress the accordion-type tubing towards the engine. Remove the old filter from the housing unit. Clean any leaves or debris out of the box. 4) Replace the old filter with a new filter and pull the lid back over to the air filter housing unit, and snap it in place. Reattach the clips to secure the lid. Hope this helps.
See here p13. You unclip the air filter housing top, loosen the circlips around each end of the boot (or corrugated hose), pull off the smaller hoses which join it, and wiggle it loose at each end. It is easier if you move the air filter housing top aside.
Turn the Sonata off to eliminate the risk of engine backfires while changing the air filter. Leave the car off until the filter has been replaced or there is risk of injury.
Lift the hood of the Sonata. Locate the air filter housing unit on the passenger side of the car, in the front corner. Look for a black, plastic cylinder that has an accordion-type hose attached to it that leads to the engine.
Remove the air intake hose and air duct from the housing unit. Disconnect the connector for the air-flow sensor from the filter cover. Unclip the clip on the filter cover. Lift the cover off the housing unit.
Take out the old filter from the housing unit. Remove any remaining debris out of the air filter unit. Wipe the inner and outer surfaces of the housing unit with a damp cloth.
Place the new air filter in the housing unit. Use a K&N air filter, part number 33-2346.
Replace the cover on the housing unit and clip it in place. Reattach the air-flow sensor. Put the air intake hose and air duct back in place on the housing unit.
I generally remove the rubber boot behind the filter to the intake housing. should be two hose clamps. Unplug the two wires pluged into the boot and slip it out of the way. They don't give you enough room to get the filter out with. This gives you about 4 inches of extra space.
Thank you for sharing the information on the light bulb. You just saved me money from having to take my 2003 Trailblazer in to have the low beam bulb replaced. I did exactly what you said.
1 Open hood and lock.
2. Take filter cover off (4 screws and they stay with the filter).
3. 3 inch cover pulls off.
4. Twist light bulb 1/8 turn.
5. Unclip the wiring harness to light bulb assembly.
6. Test by turning light switch on.
7. Align assembly with light housing and turn 1/8 until it snaps in.
8. Put 3 inch cover back on.
9. Place filter cover back on and hand tight the 4 screws.
10. Close hood.
The reverse light switch is located on the transmission housing which is behind/under the air filter housing/battery on the 2.0 litre D turbo model. To replace it you will need to remove the top of the air filter housing and the filter (2 screws plus release the air intake pipe connected to it by a large jubillee clip, also unclip a couple of cables). To remove the switch disconnect the cable clipped to it. You will need a deep 22mm socket and a universal/flexible coupling to unscrew the switch (as access is poor unless you remove the battery compartment/air filter housing).
