    Air filter replacement/Cambelt

    Hi there...I'm new to this site so don't bite! I'm trying to find info on changing my air filter...I've looked on the site already but no luck.

    I drive a MK4 Astra 1.6i 16v SXi.....I'm guessing I'll need some special tools.

    Also, I've just had the 1st cambelt, rollers and tensioner done on 92k...is this likely to improve fuel consumption?

    Cheers

    Air filter is piece of p**s, located on far left of engine, undo 4 clips and take off cover, its a big black box, you cant miss it.
    No performance increases from a cambelt change.

    Yeah seriously theres very little you can do wrong, dont even need any tools although you may want to vaccum cleaner the bottom of the box once the filter is out to get rid of the dust and muck...
    N.b. any opinitons expressed above should be ignored and considered 'ramblings', under no circumstances should they be relied upon...
