Hi,

I thought I would do some DIY whilst in lock down.

I bought a new cabin filter on line.
Removed the insulation, got the cover off and old filter out. The old filter was a real mess.
I struggled to get the new filter in, but no way could I get the cover back on.
It might be easier on a ramp?

I too had trouble getting the cover back on...
Until I realised that the obvious way it looks to fit, isn't the correct way.
It was either wrong left to right or I think upside down. Try it, once you have it the right way round it fits easily, no ramp required.

Thanks Richard,
I struggle to get in to see what goes where. I guess you are more nimble than I.

I knelt by the door and with my head as low as possible peered under the glove box. More difficult as I wear glasses and not a good angle.
Took a while. Not as long as changing the air filter though. Why do they not make things easier. Used to be a few clips, easy. Progress?

I tried every angle and ended up lying on the ground with my head in the footwell, but still could not do it Posted Image . A trip to the stealer next Posted Image ............ cheaper than a trip to the Chiropractor.
