Hello iron eagle, welcome to the forum.

I have added instructions for air filter inspection/removal in the tips and tricks section.

Many thanks for that reply and excellent step by step guide, unfortunately i should have been a bit more clearer on the model of c3, mine is an 8v and looks completely different to the 16v, is it still the same procedure to replace the air filter??? :D :D

Hi iron eagle,

The 8v and 16v have very similar procedures for changing the air filter, there are a lot less bits to remove on the 8v.

I don't have pictures for the 8 valve version - sorry.

But, you have an easier job with the less complicated 8 valve head.

There are 3 screws on the air filter box head to be undone (similar position as the 16v). The lid then hinges up (as the 16v does) and the lid can be removed giving access to the air filter element.

There are lugs on the lid, at the back that need engaging first when refitting (just like the 16v).

No need to be removing pipes, MAF sensor leads or battery box covers.

Just remember which way the filter came out and get it back in the same way.
