Cheers geez ... dunno why but airboxes have always been surprisingly tricky in the cars I've owned and the manuals/haynes have been no help - took one look under the bonnet this time and was just so no difference there. (Polo - excessive number of little snap-clips holding on the 'dustbin lid', and at least one guaranteed to skin your knuckles ... the less said about the Astra one being pretty much wedged in the drivers side wing and requiring a steam hammer to move it into an accessible position and then open/close it the better)

Hopefully with this advice it'll go a little easier and less painfully than it otherwise would.

even though its my first post on this forum, just wanted to thank you.

I have shown the registration paper of the car to the guy at the market and he gave me wrong one, the one which looks like a circle, but I do have to go again to exchange it this gonna be when they open on monday (long time)

any way after I opened it it looked similler to your filter though.

super glue would have been no use the pipe had unwound itself and was barely even repairable.

Re: How To - Megane1 2001 1.6 16v air filter replacement

Haha, you said you reckoned it was such a small job and not deserved of a How To post but you were wrong Stef. Helped me out no end pal as I thought, just like everyone else me thinks, that the black resonance box was where the filter was housed

I too, have broken the stupiodo fibre pipe in two places trying to get to the filter.....gaffa tape here we come
