Microfilter Help

So, trying to do a few simple maintenance things to my 2008 M3 coupe.

I got the air filter done yesterday (after a long and hard-fought battle w/the intake boot ) and today I was going to tackle the microfilters.

The video I saw doesn't seem to have the same compartment(s) that I have. I have 2 compartments (if I've identified them correctly) near the windshield vs. one long compartment. They LOOK like you can just pop them open, but I didn't have any luck.

Can anyone provide me some guidance as to what I need to do?

Thanks in advance...

I did this a month ago. There are, I believe, 4 screws you have to remove on each side. The covers then come off and the filters are attached inside the covers.

Thank you! That's exactly what I was trying to confirm. I saw the bolts and didn't want to start down that route if by chance there was something simpler. After the hell I went through w/the air filter I was a little gun shy. Thanks again!

BTW....RTR! My husband also went to Bama. I'm originally from Florida, so it's an all SEC household. We cheer on each other's teams...until we meet. Then all bets are off.

I did the air filter last month as well, and yes, it was a struggle figuring out the best to get it back in.
My situation is worse. My wife graduated from Auburn. She doesnt ever cheer for UA.
