Hire a contortionist!

Seriously, its very difficult to do. The designers clearly planned for LHD cars and then thought simply swapping it to the other side for RHD will be fine however there is a multitude of electronics on that side already.

So its in the passenger footwell, you need to remove the cover, lower the GEM module and then you can get up and remove the cover holding it in :(

It's worse (or at least it was worse on the early C-Max's) if you've got glovebox air-con (which makes it a kind of chilled compartment as long as the main air-con is on) as a refrigerant pipe passes infront of the pollen filter cover and makes the job even harder!  ???
