Jtd air filter

Hi folks, I'm still pondering how to get my air filter out, I've done 20 k since I got her and its been in long before that, I've got one bolt off out of three, others just turned and rusted and I cant get new bolts unless I pay 200 odd quid for new airbox. Someone told me it can be got at from underneath, has anyone done this before, I'd be very grateful for any replies. Neil

Re: Jtd air filter

id attempt to get them from the top myself, the bolts are just tapped into the plastic housing that why they just turn, silly really as mine dont seal the housing very well. one of them i get through the slam panel with an extension bar.

i did get the whole housing out, and yes it can be got from underneath but it was a pita. if i remember the battery and tray has to come out.

Re: Jtd air filter

Thanks Creon very kind of you to reply, only one is out and as I said I cant get hold of the bolts, so there's no point drilling the old ones out, just thinking 😔 if battery and tray are out, gear selectors can be lubricated to help cure my clutch judder, annoyingly I wont be doing this myself this time, I'm asking my great old mech in Morley to do it, any idea how long it will take him to do?. Thks again Neil 😊

I used to use a spring socket even then it was awkward something similar to this:

Re: Jtd air filter

Yea need to pull it up while unscrewing wouldn't fancy trying to get a drill in there, there are some air filters listed for your van that are to big, make sure to take old one with you.
