Trims over coolant and oil caps lift upwards with a trim tool .

Trim over boot lock pulls outwards at the top and is located in the carpet at the base .. this is brute force to remove but do it from the top .

Carpet out .. there is no easy way .. i pull one corner out first .. unplug the interior light whilst doing this .

remove the top plastic cover .. X2 10 mm nuts .. remove the DME .. X2 nuts and X2 bolts .. unclip the oil filler tube .. squeeze it on the ribbed part of the connection .

undo the Torx screws in both filters ..

The ring tabs and move each towards the center of the air filter to release the locks .

pull outwards ..

X2 Torx screws to undo to replace the filter .

These filters have grease on the green seal .. normally there's still plenty there so more isn't needed but the purpose it to be able to remove these in the future .

Clean out leaves in the intake and refit with new filters .
