Don't touch the glass. If you do you need to wipe it down with alcohol.

its not that hear just a pain in the ass. on drivers side you might need to take ou tthe airbox, this side was the easiest to do. passenger was hard cause its a tight sopt, well atleast for my big hands. but that little metal clip that holds it in place is a bitch to fumble with

try using some tape to keep it out of the way then release the tape. Unfortunately in order to get the clip to engage you have to push down and towards the outside of the car at the same time. Remember to get the dust covers on tightly or you will get condensation

yes that prob would have helped, but also have to play around with it and the wires so it closes right, a littel trick with the dust cover, take a little vasaliene (spell) and jsut lightly coat the o ting and the plastic nubs, it will help its close better and also help seal it up, plus keeps those rubber o rings from drying up
