RE: Air filter nightmare!

>From what I've heard, you just unclip the 3 clips (2 in front and one on
the inside in the back) and pull it off. I can easily get to the clips,
but didn't pull real hard on the housing, so it wouldn't come off.

Let me know what you find out - I'm about to change the filter on mine.

Okay, just how the hell are you supposed to change the air filter in a
'91 200?!?  I can see the clips on the sides of the air filter housing,
but there is a lot of other turbo stuff in the way which prevents me
from being able to get my hand down in there to unclip or reclip them. 
If I were to undo the clips, it doesn't look like there is any room to
move the housing away from the mount in order to get the filter in/out. 
I'm sure people change these things all the time, but how do they do it?
One of the great Audi mysteries.  There must be an easier way.  Any

Silver '91 200 with 30,000 miles on air filter!
