    Tucked behind the front offside corner of the car at bumper level. It's either a bumper off job or it is possible by removing the airbox and using a long-hosed funnel. You'll want to shine a torch in to the side of the bottle to see the level and the min-max marks.

    Possibly, but not sure if there's anything that would obstruct.

    When I did mine I used the 'from the top' method - just removed the airbox and used the long nozzled funnel and it wasn't too much hassle.

    What about fog lights and air temp sensor wiring? I can't recall there's any other wires to break?
