it should come right out without any problems. It is held in with by the plastic tabs and rubber grommets.

like stated earlier, there are a couple tabs on the air box lid, push them in and pull the whole thing off, it is quite simple, just look at it, it's self explanitory.

There are two snaps on the side of the housing where the hose leading to the intake is. Push both towards the fender, tilt the housing up slightly and push it in the direction of the engine. That should be all you have to do. On the 2.3, there might be a hose kind of in the way...just push it aside as best you can.

Read the airbox.. the lid removal instructions are posted

you just press 2 tabs on the right in. then lift up from the right side and
slide the top up and off
(left side has 3 pieces you have to slide out as you lift.
