Air Filter Removal Brera 2.2

What tools do I need to remove the air filter box lid after the undertray is removed? I've got a Pipercross to fit in place of the standard...

Small socket (and a pneumatic air hammer turned up to full power.) JOKE

Changing the air filter on an Alfa Romeo Brera or 159

Once the undertray is off you need a 7mm socket and a short extension.
Good luck with the undertray if it hasnt been off in a while, for that you'll need I think a 30 and 40 torx.

Job done. Wasn't too bad fitting the Pipercross filter in the end. Bloody funny place to have to get at an air filter though..
