Hi,

Have a look on HOW TO cjj explanes it very well, its under 30K service.
but it is a simple job, take your engine cover off for easy acces, and just open 3 clips to get to it. simple!!!

I watched Lates do mine and it is possible to change it with just the boot open, but a very very tight squeeze. First he got his arm stuck and when he did manage to get out he had a big scratch on his arm. Removing the engine inspection panel sounds much better to me

I find it just as easy to undo the hose from the air box to give you a bit more wriggle room if that doesn't sound to rude
