Apologies if this is not same as UK types.Remove the plastic engine top cover by undoing 3 torx30 screws.You should then see a aluminum housing with a black plastic top.You need a 36mm socket to unscrew the top,the paper filter element is then exposed.Replace the filter and use a torque wrench to tighten the plastic top,torque value is only 25Nm,usually this value is moulded into the lid.

Holden Astra 2001 is reving but no movement in the car and the emissions light is lit up what does this mean?

You need to try to get your car to your nearest Holden dealer to be placed onto a Diagnostic machine. It will cost about $99.00 to find out what the problem is. I have a 2001 Holden Astra which has the emission light on at the moment too. The problem you are having is due to a sensor cut out which will cause the engine to cut out.
