Default Changing air filter

Does anyone have detailed instructions orpictures of how to fully take apart the air filter compartment on a 2002 A4 1.8T and replace the air filter ? I know where filter is housed and located the 2 really long screws but it seems like there are huge hoses running over it and a couple of other hoses i may need to disconnect. I am wondering if there's an easier and straight forward way to do a simple thing such as replacing an air filter.

Wear gloves so you don't scrape your hands. If it's like the 2001 B5
you might only be able to unclip 3 of the 4 clips. You should be able
to remove and replace the filter anyway.
