No, you should just be able to jack up the driver's side of your car, take the plastics off underneath (or at least peel them back a little) and reach the filter that way. You don't have to take off your bumper for install/removal, it's just a lot easier that way.

i clean mine every month. what i do is raise up the car, take off the front left wheel, and the front left fender, then just take the filter off (i put seran wrap around the Intake toobe and ruber band it down, so nothing could get in). then i take the filter inside, and at the sink i spray warm/kinda hot water through the filter from the inside to out


was....5speed with i/h/e

i don't think it would make a difference.
Use the K&N Filter Recharger kit to clean your current filter.
