First I am a newbee at this forum altough I have been a member for a little while.

I have just had a dual battery installed and when I had a look at it today I find that I will be unable to change the air filter.
Has my elecee put the battery in the wrong place? I gave him the installation sheet supplied with the battery carrier (ARB) so I assume he did it by the instructions. Has anyone had this problem and how did you solve it. I attached some pictures to show the problem. :( :mad:

My battery tray is an ARB one as well, and it's in the same spot. It's a tight fit to get the air filter housing open, but I can still do it. If I loosen the clips and tilt the top section up I can wiggle it past the rubber hose at the bottom of the last pic without too much of an issue. It's then easy to pull the filter itself out.

That's exactly how it fits. Changing the air filter isn't a problem at all.

Cheers

Exact same ARB tray setup in exact same spot and can get to the Filter no probs. Indeed I had it out last night as I checked the Dealer had replaced it on the 80 K service yesterday.

Undo the 4 clips, lift the cover and twist about 15 degrees anti clockwise and slide slightly to the rear over the battery and clears the A/C pipe. The Rad overflow just flops out of the way

Thanks Chopsy, Ray and the evil twin, I guess I just didn't try hard enough. I just went out and did the job in a couple of minutes.
