    Ford Fiesta air cleaner

    I have a 1.6 Fiesta 2003 and cannot work out how the cover that sits across the top of the engine is removed. I need to remove this to change the air cleaner and the spark plugs. Any ideas???

    Tbh I think the idea is that you DONT attempt to do stuff like that to your car yourself these days!! That way you have to take it to a garage and pay good money for a service you could do yourself for less than 1/4 of the price!

    Ive currently got the same Fiesta, but I dont have a clue Im afraid...
