undo airbox take out old air filter, fit now air filter close air box.

or if you mean you have bought a silly cone filter? build an induction kit and refit it to the end of that.

welcome to the forum.

show us a pic of what you have, what K&N call an induction kit is normally not an induction kit at all and does more harm than good.

we also need to know what engine you have 8v, 16v or t-jet

Send it back, I regret getting mine, I put the old airbox back on and it's so much better, the piece of junk kept falling off!
I'm awaiting a gsr induction kit for my 1.2 8v, I think the one for the 1.4 16v na isnt available for a month or so,

This is what you want

Re: How to change stock air filter to K&N air filter?

Ahhh Really? is there anyway of stopping it falling off? so you'd recommend the gsr kit instead?

Well I've got my KaN on now but i'll see how it goes for now, but if not i'll look at getting the gsr

Cheers for the advice!
