It's pretty easy to get out the air filter once you figure out about the
"secret" screw holding down the rear outside of the top part of the filter
box. Two or three snappy wire clamps on the other sides, the secret screw
(flashlight and long screwdriver helps, it's also a captive type so don't
worry about dropping it) and it comes right off. No need to remove any
shields, just the top of the box and maybe the front air hose clamp.
