Sorry in advance, I post here rarely and when I do it is for noob questions like this. I tried a search and failed to find something on this, but anyway here's my quesiton:

I got a universal pod air filter from heeters (http://www.heeters.com/AirFilters.shtml near the bottom, for a35) to put on my a35 targa. However, it is next to impossible to get on because one of the engine mount nuts is directly in the way. Is there a good way to make this fit or should I just return it and get something different? Thanks for the help...

and I can get it on by loosening the intake to wiggle it on to get the rubber rim past the bolt, but then the engine mount bolt is jamming into the foam which I am afraid will eventually tear up the foam, not to mention I don't really want to have to loosen the intake every time I want to get at my air filter or carb.
