Air Filter Access

Purchased an '06 SE a couple of weeks ago and love the car. I want to check the air filter and the brief instructions in a manual seem easy enough...unfasten the clips and lift the top of the filter case off the bottom.

Seemed very straight forward until I tried to do that...not as simple (for me anyway).

The top appears to be held on by the two clips on the fender side, and what appears to be plastic hinges on the engine side. I don't want to break something. Any help will be appreciated.

I always loosen the first big hose clamp holding the intake duct after the air filter box. Then just pop the clips and lift the box cover. Good luck.

I took the clamps off and was able to lift it just enough to take out the old one and put in the new one.

Thank you both for your responses. That is the way I understood that it comes off, but it seems that it may be hinged on the engine side, as that side does not come up??

I think there is 1 clamp on the engine side... but can't remember for sure.

It's not a hinge, it's just lips that stick out through holes in the top. Take off the hose and pop the clips and with enough wiggling you'll get the top off.
