Another approach: Push straight back hard on the front of the airbox--harder than you would think--collapsing the accordian tube somewhat. The box will pop out of the two front grommets. Then pull up on the box so that it pops out of the two bottom grommets. (BTW, the box does not come out all the way.) Undo the clips, open the box and remove/install the filter. Then close the box, push it down into the two bottom grommets and it should then pop into the front grommets. And you're done. You don't need to disconnect anything.
CAUTION: Make sure you don't dislodge the grommets when reinstalling the box.

If it is the stock airbox you pull up on the back of the box without unlatching anything, this will pull the box out of the rubber grommets that it sits in.
Next unlatch the front of the box.
You should be able to get it open far enough to pull the air filter out.
If not then disconnect the hose from the front of the box and open the box.
This is also in the manual.
That's wayyyy to much work... I've been using Go48's method for the last 2 years and it only takes a few seconds. I can swap entire intake/air boxes in less that 2 minutes at this point after dozens of experiments and projects
