Air Filter Access

Three wire toggle clips & one screw.

Two clips are on the front (i.e. bumper) side
and one is on the rear (near the corner closer
to the engine). All are vertically "in the middle"
of the housing where it splits between top and
bottom halves.  The screw head is down in a tight
spot between the upper housing and the fender.
You might need a flashlight to see it the first

Only tricks are for putting it back together.
The rear clip takes some finger dexterity to
reinstall since you can't see what you're doing.
The clip can be toggled with one finger once
the end is in place in the small slot in the
upper housing, but getting that end in the slot
takes some patience and feeling with your fingers.

Using too narrow a screwdriver can be a problem
getting the screw started.  I use a 5/16 or 3/8.

It'll be simple once you've done it a few times.
