Please let me know how that cover comes off. I found the one clip center front, and there look to be two clips in back on either side. Is the total 3 or are there more? Just replacing air filters. Thanks.

found them. thanks anyway.

Just be careful for the clips on the back when you put the lid back. Make sure that both arms go around the rubber plug, otherwise you will bent one of them flat. I think the dealer charges something like $30 a clip. Fortunately you can bent them back into shape if needed.

Don't feel bad - all of us started out like that. The important thing is just to persevere. Everything get much quicker as you gain experience.

Sure am glad you asked that question. I joined this forum just for that very topic, but was too embarrassed to post the query. I'll look again when she gets home with her 01 320.

I had the same feelings when i got my 320 last year ! Did not know howto remove the cover, but did not want to pull it too hard and break anything ! :eek:

As they say `it`s easy when you know how !` regards Damian. :D
