Default Mk6 Fiesta air filter replacement - am I being a retard?

Hi all

Tried replacing the air filter on my girlfriend's mk6 fiesta 1.4, it sits in a plastic box on top of the engine.

I've undone the 2 10mm bolts that are on top of the box, and there is 3 what feels like 8mm bolts underneath the box at the back. Do I have to undo these as well to be able to open the box? I cant even get my hand down there behind the box, let alone get a socket/spanner on these bolts....

Am I doing it right, or am I being a retard?

Thanks

Na look at the back of the box mate, and there is 3 of these ball things that sit tight in rubber gromets. Just spray some wd40 on them and it will come out easy, with out breaking anythink.

I've no Idea, but I thought I'd let you know, either way, you are still a 'tard.
