    Are you talking about the one that goes into the MAF unit ?
    Anyway unscrew the air box from the MAF, there are 2 screws & then the filter goes onto the end of the MAF :)

    Hi im taling about the plug with the metal clip around in the centre of the pic (not the jubille clip)

    any ideas? its just if i take all that off then im going to be left with that cable :(

    That is your MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. Very important part for your car for fuelling, power, timing etc.

    Basically do not remove it.

    Dont buy a BMC CDA, either smooth out your original airbox and fit a green cotton panel filter and remove the snorkel air feed into the box, or fit a green cotton cone filter.
