You don't need to remove the aircleaner box, you need to remove the crossover tube. Simply unclip the mass air flow sensor from the filter box and loosen the top clamp on the rubber boot that goes to the ETA. disconnect any wires and move the tube out of the way. Are you sure you want to do this yourself?

There is always a beginning and I did not wanted to take chance removing something that i was not sure about as plastics are brittle there and don't want to break something which should not be removed in first place.
I am more confident working on my 420sel then 300e as i worked only on that so far. Last year was for 420sel and this year will be for 300e.

Thanks for the pointers devcrk. I was unsure about removing tube over mas.
rest is done.
