The MF 165 emblem on the left hand side of the tractor seems to be very snug. Looking at every picture and everything I have read this should just pull down to open. Before I pry too hard on this I wanted to confirm that is how the door should open, just pull down? I just do not want to break anything.

Thanks,
David

no you do not need to remove the knob. It acts as a clamp. with the knob loose does the cross member wiggle? It could be rusted. it should slide one direction or the other that will unhook it from the air filter case. the knob and cross member com out together. It should be fairly easy just have to slide it to the correct direction. It could be rusted in place if it will not wiggle with the knob loose.

OK so the knob loosens completely? It stopped turning and I was not able to pull it all the way out, but I did not put too much pressure as I was worried about breaking something if I were doing it wrong. So when it stops turning it should pull out so I can remove the cross member?

the knob loosens and then allows you to slide the cross member to the side and unhook it. knob and cross member are removed and then filter just pulls out.

I can see there is something behind the emblem on the front left, I can get it to start to open, I just honestly wasn't sure if it opened down, left, right or up. I think it opens down, but it is not wanting to cooperate.

The hinge could be rusty, and or just stuck. I've had some where I had to use penetrating oil on the hinge, and slowly work them to free them up.

I can see that it should open, the issue is when I tried to open it I could not just pull down, I am not sure what else to try.

Be careful, not all 165's have that arrangement. In the UK I think only early tractors do or ones with multi power.

Cheers,Ali.

Hi, that was my thought when I started reading this. The UK-made 165/175/178 up to 1970 had an oil bath air filter unit mounted slightly left of centre when looking at the front of the radiator. The oil bowl is accessed through the front grille. You will be able to see if the air filter body is vertical or horizontal by looking through the grille door. It would be worth removing the upper front mesh to gain better access.

OK so now I have the door open. I have loosened the knob on the assembly until it stops turning. What now? I cannot get the filter out, should I be able to unscrew this hand knob completely? If so I will need a pair of pliers or something to get more leverage, but again I do not want to break anything. Is looks like there is a cross member that I should be able to leverage out but I cannot get it far enough to one side or the other. I have looked for videos showing the filter getting changed, but I have not found any. Also it is a dry filter no oil or anything and that is per the specs as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Again it is a Massey Ferguson 165 Diesel.
