Once you have everything off and loosened, the main air filter box is held in my two plastic pointed "fingers" (for lack of a better term) that are pushed into rubber groumets at the bottom of the box. The box itself pulls up and out taking care of the snorkel that draws air in from the fenderwell.

It's been over 3 years since I took it out...hope I didn't miss anything.

It's actually a very tight press fit into a couple of mounting holes, unless the N/A is different from the turbo but I don't think so. Anyway, you basically need to wiggle it just a little while pulling up with a good deal of force to pop it out. Worst case scenario: as the darn thing finally lets go, and you're tugging will all your might, it will pop out and smack you in the face.[B)]

Be careful!
