air filter change

Does anyone know how i can change the air filter on my new 2010 honda civic 2.2l cdti?
Unlocking the 3 clips is not enough! There is an electric connector on the back which i can't seem to remove?
thanks

The MAF sensor has has a small tab that you need to press. You don't need to unhook the sensor tho as unhooking the air box clips (on the sides) should provide enough space to slip the old filter out and the new one back in.

that attachment was cool, thanks.. didn't realise how much goes on in engine when you press the foot down. I have another question, my honda civic 2.2l cdti 2010. there is no mention of tyre pressure for a single driver. It has a picture on side door of five men and a boot load, and a picture of towing a caravan. it advises the tyre pressure for these. The manual doesn't have any info either. Would you know what the tyre pressure ought to be for my car with a single driver or two? thanks.

Yup, modern cars are complex beasts.

Sorry, no prizes - especially non for you Jon

Re: tyre pressures - there's usually an info plate on the inner door jam that tells you tyres pressures, including laiden. Handy if you are at a garage with an air line

Or if your online, there's always the Civinfo Wiki http://www.civinfo.com/wiki/index.ph...ressures<br />

thanks, You'd think that multi plate would tell you tyre pressure but it only advises on fully loaded which i think is incorrect for a single driver.
i'm still trying to get used to the rear spoiler- it's a silly place to have it. Do civic drivers get over it? would you recommend a space saver wheel or is the trk fluid kit good enough?

The rear spoiler doesn't bother me anymore, it did initially. It's great during the darker months, no more dazzle

Spacer saver is a tricky one. If I were ever stranded and the goo didn't help, then I'd want a spare. However, most of the time I make good use of the cubby hole.

thanks for the advice. i like the position of the gear but don't like the gear knob so I've been looking at replacing that bit. Your car looks no bad. it's a diesel/2.2l do you get about 40mpg in urban driving?

Yes, my ride is a derv and early on I swapped the OEM gear knob for an aftermarket copy. It's cheap 'n' cheerful and feels better than the original.

Thankfully I don't do much urban driving. I tend to get 57mpg (tank to tank calc's) and find town driving does pull the average down.

What'd you drive?

i drive a 2010 honda civic 2.2l ictdi saphire blue ES type. I like the colour/perspex front grille and panoramic roof. Just worried that if something goes wrong with car honda might charge alot. i've recently ordered some car mats/boot tray from cyberspares and some silver speaker rings from coxmotorparts honda supplier. But am looking forward to a new gear knob so am chatting to a guy who makes bespoke gear knobs and i hope to get something nice once i get the size dimensions right. It's kinda addictive once u buy a honda civic, never thought i'd be that into it!
