very easy just take the two 10mm nuts off by the cruise control. then pull apart the inlet from the front of the box. then there is a 10mm bolt holding on the back side of the stock air box between the throtle body and the box holding on the temperature control sensor. then since you have a euro hfm undo the wire that goes to the hfm just like a bottle cap.and take a flat screw driver to losen the hose clamp now the box and hfm should come out together. then stick your hand up by the head light to get the inlet piece you pulled of earlier it has a clip in the center justg push it back towards the engine and it will come out. install the new components the opposite of what i said. the chip is easy. pull the two 10mm blolts of the bottom of the rubber houing enclosing the dme. its along the fire wall on the passenger side behind the positive power point under the bonnet.then pull the three tabs with your fingers. then there are four #2 philips screws to pull out and you can see the dme. be careful with the wires you dont want anything to happen to them. pull out the dme towards you. just grab the sides and pull. unclip it by puling the metal tab the only way it will come off. then pull the tabs back with a flat head screw driver and you will not see the chip it has a white plastic cover. carefully slide a small flathead screw driver into on of the groves on either side of the plastic and pry to the side carefully. once the cover is off there is the chip. with the same screw driver side it between the chip and dme carefully pull it out. you do not want to bend or damage any of the pins in case you have to put it back in depending on the chip they will probably tell you how to install but just in case. once you have the chip out there is a little indent on the dme and the chip always line them up. if its a jim c chip there is an encription board that goes in first that follows the same principal. all the indents should line up on the same side. if you run into problems or have any other questions feel free to e-mail me
