    Default Air Filter replacement

    I've bought a K&N panel filter to replace the paper filter in my 2006 Vectra 3.0 cdti sri. Does anybody know how to get into the filter housing? I was expecting to find a plastic box with clips but this thing seems to be screwed down with torx screws and has an ecu mounted on it and various cables etc. I don't really want to start dismantling it if there's an easy way.

    Depending upon which engine you have you might have to unplug the electrical connection to the Mass Air Flow sensor, and the undo the jubilee clips that hold the MAF pipe in place, to separate it from the airbox lid.
