The only thing I can think of is the filter has come loose and is stopping the filter housing from being pull up, maybe getting something thin and sliding it down to try and push the filter back into place

I know when i did mine for the first time i had to give it a damn good pull. It was very stubborn

Have you removed the slam panel first? as IIRC it's in the way of the filter housing

Again it takes a bit if a tug to release the filter housing

cheers guys, will give this a try when I get home from work.

was a bit scared yesterday as I started to pull a bit rough and was worried a knocked something or broke something in the engine.
Give it quite a tug ... both hands whilst watching you dont wack your hands or the casing on the bonnet catch .... with some gentile Persuasion it will go past it.
