Right, I've taken delivery of a BMC panel filter today and had a quick attempt at fitting it, but with no luck :sorry:. I understand that you need to remove the engine cover, but is there a particular knack required to do this?
I've removed the intake trunking, the exit pipe and the electrical connector, but is there anything else that needs disconnecting before the plastic cover will come off? It feels like rather a lot of resistance if I tug it, but it did seem to move a little (as if there is a rubber seal somewhere that needs to be pulled off). Is there a particular area that I need to free first?
Any help required, as I'd like to fit the filter tomorrow, ready for when my Carbonio arrives (hopefully at the weekend ;) )
PS. I'm usually pretty competent at fiddling with cars, but I'm paranoid that I'll break something if I just keep on pulling without knowing what I'm doing...
