    Just remove the plastic bowl with the nut shaped end to it. Do not apply too
    much force you do not want to break it! Be prepared for some oil spillage.
    I usually let the oil drain for a while before reoving the filter bowl as it
    lessens the spillage.

    Just unscrew the big air intake pipe that goes to the manifold and push it
    out the way.
