Air box removal

I'd like to remove the air box. I can see it is held down by these plastic fasteners. I can't figure out how they work and don't want to damage anything. Any clues before I start?

Re: Air box removal

I have removed mine or at least partially to get my hand in behind when fitting LEDs in my DRLs.

1- the intake has to come out first, just pull up on the rubber sealing strip at the top where the push clip is to detach it, then when you have removed the element and top of the air box you will see the bottom section is pushed into the box and held with its own clips, press the top one down while wriggling it a bit and it will come out.

2- All that now remains is to undo the bolts that hold the bottom of the box to the car, from memory though these may be the security type needing allen key style tools.

Hope this helps, I am sure you will be able to give a much better removal synopsis when you complete the job.

Re: Air box removal

Thanks for that! I should have made it clearer. It's the bottom of the air box that has me stumped. I'll have a go as you suggest.

Re: Air box removal

It's on there with 3 rubber o-rings on 3 studs, snug fitted. Just yank it up, you wont hurt anything. The o-rings may come out still installed on the box or still stuck on the studs. Just pull the o-ring off and put back into the hole on the box.

Re: Air box removal

Many of the Intake manufacturers have the detailed step by step on installing their intakes. Part of the that would be the full removal of the air box. I don't have a link but that should help. Thats assuming the 3.0L has the same air box. (I just read you had a diesel)
