    Default Airfilter change

    Hi,

    just got my new K&N and was eager to fit it before going home.
    To my surprise, I found that rather then the usual clips, I do need a torx screwdriver.

    Am I looking at the wrong place here or is that correct?

    Wohoo ... sounds like a harder job then I thought.

    What would be the reason for them to make it so complicated rather then the normal clips - wham bam - done?

    I know what you mean with the MAF, but what hoses do I need to disconnet first?
