Accessing the intake hose on my 2011

Hi, I'm trying to change out a cracked intake hose on my 2011 Murano. However, access to the hose is being blocked the brake fluid reservoir. I've tried to remove it, but the bolts are somewhat stripped and I've had no luck removing them. I'm quite frustrated with it and I do not want to take it to the shop for such a simple repair.

My question is, is it possible to swap out the intake hose without removing the brake fluid reservoir? I seems like I may be able to fold and jam it in there, but I'm afraid of causing damage to the part or some other component.

Any advice is much appreciated.

Are you referring the "Air Duct Assembly" that connects between the air filter housing and throttle body?
If so, why don't you remove the air cleaner housing to make room, rather than brake fluid reservoir.

Also, which bolt is strip? Can you attach the picture?

Bryan, I'm sure that it's not necessary to remove the brake fluid reservoir. I know that sometimes I have had difficulty figuring out how in the wide world of sports you get something off to work on it....

If the mounting pieces are stripped, it may be something to have a mechanic do the first time.

Pictures would help.
