I tried to install these today.... What do I have to put between filter and box, as its very lose, nothing is holding them in place and probably more air will be sucked in from outside rather than through the filter.. What I am doing wrong?

Yes, install video uses not AMS filters. Also even if you stick some foam or something between filter and wall to hold them in place... probably 50% air to the engine would be taken from around the hole where filter connects to the car as it probably has 5mm gap around the hole... makers please prove me wrong.. I really want to try them....

See the bump out above the alpha logo? it needs to engage the housing then they won’t wobble.

Did you install the AMS filters or the Flat 6 filters - they are different. who did you purchase from? Almost looks like they are the wrong size. I initially purchased the AMS filters and I had just the opposite problem - they were too big. The only way I could get them to fit was to squeeze or compress the filter and even then inserting the slide panel was very difficult. I didn't want to distort the filter element or force the panel to do this so I sold them. I've since purchased the Flat 6 filters and they fit. They are tight (not loose like your video shows) and I was able to get the sliding partition to close. Based on your video I'd say you got the wrong filters but I don't know if AMS makes a different size.
