Not to sound... rude, but unless I'm missing something here it should take less time to put on and off than to write up tips.

It's a BBK. I have a second filter and I test fitted it and was really tight mainly wondering if you can lubricate it some way of if it would be best to remove the whole cai and do it outside the car.

If you're concerned with fitment, then yeah go ahead an pull the whole cai and get a good look. Be sure you've got the right replacement filter as well.

Why are you replacing the filter is my question. You can buy a recharge kit from any auto parts store to clean it and reuse the same one you have.

Yeah, do you see my general confusion here? DO YOU HAVE A CONICAL FILTER? or is it some drop in flat filter? Also if its a conical filter and its just dificult to get on to the air intake tube, yes you can use a little WD-40 or something just dont overdue it, because it will get sucked onto your MAF sensor and you will need to clean it.

No WD 40

Just use "SPIT" Yes, I said "SPIT" it will slide on easy and the spit will dry up and no harm to your MAF.

Do it in the daytime, It is nothing you need to full with when it is dark out.
