Answer to question #2<p>You do not have to remove it completly, just loosen it enough to remove the cover and get to the plugs. Also will be a good idea to have a vacuumcleaner handy. There will be a lot of small broken plastic pieces. You'll know what I mean when you remove the cover.<p>

I guess you could remove the glovebox.<p>I had no problem replacing the filter leaving the glovebox alone.<p>

The small broken plastic pieces come from the FLEXIBLE WIRE LOOM that cover the coil wires.<p>Looks like the engine heat dries them up and they break apart from vibration. Wasn't a real problem, but I vacuumed them out before I took the plugs out, didn't want any of the pieces falling into the cylinders thru the spark plug holes.<p>

you really thought the cabin filter was a PITA?<p>I had an '01 s60 t5 and it was extremely easy to replace.

mine took all of about 10 minutes from start to finish.<p>You just have to contort your body a little bit under the glove compartment.<p>Brakes won't take more than 40 minutes per side.
