I have a 2004 Subaru Forester (non-turbocharged), and recently attempted to change the engine air filter. There is a bolt that secures the housing to the car, and the usual clips. I can remove the bolt and the clips, but the housing is positioned so it is slightly under the body, toward the cabin. I cannot lift it out to adequately access the entire filter to remove it. Additionally, it seems the hose should be removed as well, but there isn't a clamp on it.
I've replaced air filter's before on at least 3 other types of cars I've had, but this one is positioned to make it as hard as possible. What's the trick for this model and year?
have the same problem?
