Thanks for all this advice - I now have the job done and thought i might leave an update should it help anyone else.
My 2007 Van did have a Vin starting 244 and the fuel filter doesnt appear to need a special tool as in my case I was able to stop any fuel leak by tightening by hand. Actually the initial leak appeared to help bleed it.
I didnt take out the air filter housing as I saw it was on rubber mounts ( and I still dont know how you would without dropping the engine) by removing the screen wash upper support arm near the filler point a 10mm bolt you can pull the air filter housing forward and push the large air filter cartridge inside and over the housing internal tube - its really tight - as it is hard to clear the ally cross brace that supports the wiper motor BUT when complete it is appropriate to have a little cheer and some celebratory expletives to show your engineering prowess.
