I will be servicing my car myself and wondered if I will have to completly remove the standard airbox in order to change the oil filter?
Or can I get enough access without removal?

Any help greatly appreciated.

The oil filter is on the left hand side of the engine, you need to remove the top black plastic trim panel that covers the slam panel, then remove the 2 pipes that run from the grille to the air filter, from there you will see the top of the oil filter housing (plastic), you have to use a long big socket on a flex-extension to remove it and then change the element (filter) inside.

You can pull the left side of airbox unit forward slightly. It displaces it by a few millimeters to give a little more clearance as it is quite a squeeze getting filter the oil filter cap through the gap. Just push the air unit forward to re-seat after oil filter replacement.
