hello,

Just been out to change the air filter on my 96 cse ( cylindrical filter) . Wasn't looking too closely when I took the old one out as to which end is which.

When fitting the new filter does the open end go in first I presume ( and closed end is nearest to the engine ) ?

Are you sure about that Mark? Unless your filter is totally different from mine ('96 2.3T) the closed end goes in first. The cap has the hose to the inlet attached to it through which all of the air going into the engine goes. If you fit the filter open end first it will blank this off and no air will be available to the engine.
