Mr. Bond, use a small pair of vise grips and hold the plastic around the brass nuts for the four airbox bolts. Once the bolts are removed, use a long slender flat blade screw driver to GENTLY pry the two retaining clips outward to release the airbox cover by pulling it rearward and slightly downward at the same time. Pull the filter straight down to slide it off.With the cover off,make sure there are two or three holes drilled into the cover for water drainage,otherwise you could ingest water and hydrolock your engine with disastrous results.Pay attention to the fitment of the two bottom front aligning tabs when reinstalling the cover into the airbox, slightly angle the cover downward at the rear and slide the cover into the tabs and swing the cover up, making sure the two side clips engage.If you did not mangle the nuts you can epoxy them into the plastic, but make sure the bolts are not cross threaded already,if so you need to perform some thread repair. Best of luck 007.
