GTV Air Filter

Changing the air filter,does it also require you to unscrew the 3 nuts and 3 screws and disconnecting the maf sensor?

I believe so, as the filter comes out from above

Cant be sure though as i have never changed the filter. Only swapped OEM for a BMC CDA

Just doing mine and I have the case 'lid' of with MAF still connected - so no didn't undo
the 3 maf nuts. Actually tried on the bench but seized quite hard.

Also the three lid nuts will most likley be seized which is a right royal PITA. I ended up pulling
out 2 of 3 screws complete with the threaded brass insert with mole grips. To get easier access you will need to disconnect the intake hose and maybe remove the resonator
