Hi,
I'm having a problem removing the air filter cover so I can clean my air filter. I have a Stella 4T 2012. The 4th screw is behind a metal bar so I can't get at it with a screw driver. I saw that someone said you have to take out the shock absorber screw and that will somehow make it easier to unscrew the 4th screw. Does anyone know if a video that shows this process? I'm pretty confused on how to do this. Thanks!

Is this the bolt I have to take out in order to move the engine to get to the 4th screw? Will I be able to put the screw back in by myself or do you have to have another person there to help me line up the holes?

I haven't done it myself, but I think the one you're pointing to is right—the Service Station Manual says "open rear shock absorber lower bolt (engine side)." Torque it to 3 kg m (≈22 ft lbs) when you replace it.

Try a right-angle screwdriver or small vice grips if you don't want to do the shock thing. Some folks have replaced that screw with a bolt so they can remove it with a wrench.

it would be a good idea to have someone there to help when reconnecting the shock. Be sure to torque the bolt correctly.
