Well there are 4 Torx screws you have to undo. do you have some Torx bits?

They look like this:


Top comes off and the filter just pops out.

Completed my first engine air filter change last weekend @ 80,000km. Before and after pics attached.

Not too bad really for 80,000 km but dirtier than my Outlook gets over the same change interval.

I'm curious. What is the recommended replacement interval for the air filter on your Astra? For the L Series it would be about 50,000 km.

I agree with you. I would've expected the air filter to look much darker. It's impressive that the air filter in your Outlook stays cleaner longer than does the one in the Astra.

80,000km as per the manual.

For fun I've attached a pic of the Outlook's last filter change at 160,000km. Comparing the two perhaps not as much of a difference except less larger items trapped in in the filter.
