RE: Air filter nightmare!

Don't know if Scott's car is a q--the '91 200 had the MC engine.

For the 3B:  In addition to the 3 clips, there's also a screw on the outside
edge, down low next to the fender sheet metal.  you'll need a long (10" ?)
screwdriver to reach down there.  fortunately, it is a captive screw.
judging from mike's response, some folks may have removed/forgotten that screw.
