    yeah, except I know that engine cover not that easy, to get off, i see screws, special ones, , though I have all the tools to do it, it is making sure I undo everything before I start pulling as things tend to break

    There are some decent guide for removing the engine cover. I will see if I can dig one up.

    Well not sure I would wish that job on anyone, but I have changed air filter, but the pulling the engine cover off, was dam hard work.
    That guide was not 100 % right, but it was a great help.

    Anyhow, New Filter, lets see how it makes a difference, not sure I will see one though.

    Again Thanks All

    Hi Brett

    Hence why we all gladly get rid of the bloody engine cover, it's a pain in the @rse!! Appreciate for those wanting to keep OEM look its a necessity, but getting the lid off the first few times is the worst, it will get easier.
