Re: Air filter nightmare...

On the '91 200q, you remove the air filter by loosening the intake
hose to the filter box, disconnect the air mass sensor cable, and
popping up the three clips.  You might think that there should be four
clips and not three, but in place of the fourth clip there is a barely
accessible screw that has to be loosened/tightened by some sort of
tool as yet to be invented.  I only found out about the screw when I
replaced my filter and noticed it on the housing.  Evidently, some
poor soul loosened it early in the life of the car and it had never
been re-tightened.  I tried for about an hour to re-tighten it, but
finally saw the light and just let it be.
