    Air box removal ??

    Ok I think I’ve posted this before but not much (useful) response. How the hell do I get the air box off my 00’ S3? The only thing I see is one bolt at the front underneath the air box. Can anyone help?? Pictures? Diagrams? Video? Quick visit to my garage?? Thx!!

    Assuming you have taken the airbox off , there is a bracket at the rear of the airbox , it has two bolts , undo them and lift the airbox up and rearwards ,
    There will be some resistance until the rubber boots come off the throttle bodies.
    Mark all your vacuum hoses or take note of where they go .
    I like shiny things.

    Thx Bucket! Finally figured it out! What a PIA these bikes are to work on. Also found I had a bad hose to the idle speed control valve. Might explain the misses at low RPM’s...
