PITA Air filter housing, EASY when hot.

I have owned a 2012 SE and now a 2014 ST Focus. Both have the same air filter housing.
Each time the air filter housing has been very hard to get back on. Until today.
Today I changed the filter with the engine HOT. And the whole job WAS A BREEZE. took only a few minutes. The too big filter? Easy to get on, only a small bit of push IN! The cover went back on instantly. Only needed to push it back at the 'short end' slightly, easily, and all together perfect.
I was AMAZED how easy it all went back together. After the hassles when cold.
So this is a SHOUT OUT. Change your air filter when the engine bay s HOT. It will be much much easier than if the engine and filter box are cold.
