Can you just pull out the headlights like on the b6?

I think it's much more work to remove the air filter and the reservoir.. Than rather just taking off bumper.. J can take off the bumper with my eyes closed.. 10 min max...

For the passenger's side, did you just remove the air duct on the top or the entire assembly?

5-10 mins if you don't remove the bumper and do it this way - and you don't need as much work space either because you don't have a bumper laying around... just sayin

whole assembly - but its easier if you have an aftermarket intake ;-)

I literally just tried this procedure right now and had trouble getting the PSR out of the way. How did you manage to wiggle that thing out without damaging the hoses and without removing the windshield wiper reservoir?!?! I thought it was going to be quick and easy but when I removed the bolts, the PSR did NOT want to budge. I will attempt this again when I have a few more hours to spare. Thanks for anymore info!
