I have both cars and the difference is space.  You're right, on the 5000
its not an issue, but the extra length of the 5cylinder motor in the 
smaller/shorter 4000 engine bay, makes it a bear.  

I deal with it by loosening all that I can without loosening any
of the fuel fittings.  Then with a significant amount of pressure
upwards on the assembly, combined with a rolling motion, you can barely 
slide out/in the air filter.  This is probably why I only do this once 
a year. :)
