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.

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.

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.
