Need help real quick!

Hey guys!

In the middle of installing my Macht Schnell filter.
Really easy install but i'm running into a small issue.

The tensioner isn't holding the new filter in place. There's a very, very tiny gap between the tensioner and the filter - the tensioner is also completely extended.

The stock filter actually had an extension that held the filter against the tensioner, but the aftermarket one doesn't Everything fits perfectly but I'm worried this is too loose...

Any advise?

Thanks

The little arm thingy in the airbox changed on the 2010 cars maybe even the 2009
EAS sells an adapter for the filters to fit

You may wanna get a refund & buy a BMC euro filter that is made specifically for the car.
