    Thumbs up

    Did mine a few weeks back.

    Unplug multiplug and disconnect pipe flowing in from the right.
    I used a hammer and screwdriver to loosen the ring but be careful as these can be damaged easily.Must be a special tool for this!
    Filter will then lift out with the housing,twist paper filter from housing.
    New filter comes in protective plastic cover, you will need to use the cover to fit the filter to the housing as the new filter is not to be touched by hand for some reason?Twist new filter on to filter head housing and carfully fit your new seals to filter housing.Offer it back into the reservior and tighten up ring by hand and then a few taps with hammer and screwdriver again be very carefull do not over do it. reconnect pipe and multiplug and start engine to self bleed (it may stall untill system is bled up.)
    I ordered genuine parts from my local autopart shop and the guy told me he had the same filters in non genuine stock but same brands at about twenty quid cheaper so check it out.
    Hope this was helpful
