I don't know, if you're not mechanically inclined it might be difficult, but its just four semi long 8 mm bolts iirc and the lid comes straight off. You might need to remove the front half of the battery cover which slides right off to get to the rear two bolts.

Lid comes off, slide filter off of the air ducting, slide the new one in which is not uni-directional like the o.e. filter, and button everything back up.
