Just fitted my restricter plate, most daunting thing about it was pulling off the engine cover!
simply remove the two bolts on top, and slip in the restricter plate. There was a gasket in it already, which I left on top of the restricter plate. Slide the bolts through those, then line up the pipe, it's a little fiddly getting it lined up, as the pipe underneath is fairly stiff. Once I got that lined up it it was plain sailing again, started the engine to check for any leaks or error messages, and then put the cover back on....20mins?
The video I posted earlier really shows how simple it is, definitely a good guide.
