Which ever cover you have purchased, there are a few on the market, here is a quick how to guide to fit them 馃憤

1: Remove Maf/air sensor from cross over pipe
2: Remove cross over pipe and it鈥檚 mounting pillars/posts
3: Remove oil filler cap
4: Remove Torx head screws from engine cover
5: Remove engine cover (Duratec RS)
note: if your car still has symposer fitted this may need to be removed also


With the above steps completed move onto the next part

1: Remove the breather pipe (circled) using a flat blade screw driver, gently prize it upwards towards the bonnet.
note: there is a bolt underneath the pipe which is one of the three bolts that are swapped to hold beautification plate in place,
note: the breather pipe can only be removed once the engine cover (Duratec RS) is removed
2: Remove the two remaining bolts as circled in diagram as these are the other two bolts to be swapped to hold BP in place
3: Fit BP in place using the bolts that were supplied with it. If you were not given bolts contact your supplier, torque the bolts up to 20 N/M when fitting. The bolts should look the ones pictured below, note: if they look different they are more than likely incorrect


Refit all parts in reverse order, note: be gentle when refitting the cross over pipe mounting pillars/posts and torx head screws for the engine cover (Duratec RS) as these are screwing into Ally which is soft and the threads are easily stripped
Note: these covers do resonate a little bit/give off a slight (rattle)

A little Update 馃憤馃憤

once everything is removed you should end up with as pictured below, breather pipes pops off upwards and you rotate the pipe anti clockwise to stow out the way whilst you fit bolt 馃憤馃憤
