Are you intending only to change the air filters? There is no need to disconnect the battery to do that.hi,
i want to remove the air filter housing from my car.......
i have replaced that air filter recently, the one that i haven't changed it in a while is the filters for the cabin, so i am not using the filter function on the climate control since they are old,i should tend to them as well.Yes Benzyle, that must be M271 so as you pointed out it's a 5 min job.
@abril, do not pull out the screws from the cover as they're tied to it - once you have them undone just lift the cover, remove the filter and clear all debris in the housing, fit in a new filter ensuring it seals properly against the intake, and replace the cover. If you haven't already / recently you ought to consider replacing the cabin / pollen filter which is clipped in a plastic tray right above the battery - not tools needed.
