Air Filter Question

Hi guys - I have run into a bit of problem. I ordered an air filter for my 04 SE and they appear to have sent me the wrong filter. They sent the standard filter thatís basically a square. But when I opened the housing I was surprised to see a sphere shaped filter. So I believe I know which filter to buy. But itís unclear how to install it. Can you guys help? Thanks.

So I THINK it's the same as the 987 airbox and filter, right?
