Re: Air filter nightmare!

You have just outlined the way I always do it. It is cramped in there, 
but there is just enough space to pull the filter out and put a new one 
in. Just be patient. You may want you use a small extention like a screw 
driver to unclip the bottop latches.
There maybe a better way, but it takes me under five minutes, so I'm 
perfectly satisfied.
