3.0 V6 air intake
Gaah, don't you just hate it when those supposedly simple 5-minute jobs turn into a bit of a marathon? I spent a frustrating couple of hours this afternoon trying to replace the cheapo aftermarket K&N-type filter fitted by the previous owner of my GTV, with a standard airbox setup.
I've got all the right parts, and I can see how they're supposed to fit together, but how the hell do you fit the rubber seal that goes at the base of the MAF unit? It's so thick that the bolts poking up from the air filter housing don't extend past it, so I can't fit the brackets that clamp it down because there isn't any thread for the nuts to attach to. Do you have to compress the seal somehow? Or even cut it down a bit??
