On the urq there's no question that the easiest way to R&R the air filter is
to remove the passenger side headlight ... takes only 3 screws.
On the 5kCSQ I've found removing the metal tube that goes from the boot over
the airflow sensor plate to the turbo inlet boot makes plenty of room to get
the filter in and out. It has been a while, but I'm thinking that I'd
remove the bottom cover with the filter in place to make it easier to
install the replacement ...
Anyone replace air filter on a Quattro type 44 with turbo charger? What to
look out for? It is cramped working with those lift-over clamps.
It's a very tight fit but you can replace the air filter without removing
euro headlight. If you pop off the cover, wedge it to the side you get about
one inch of space to slide/force the filter through. The real pain is
those lift over clamps back on, used a mixture of careful placement, a long
screw driver and a lot of swearing.
