im having dome trouble taking off my stock air filter. how do you open the box?<p>there seem to be 3 connections in the back , and the middle one is the prob;lem. is it stuck or do i need to do it a certian way ?
There are three tabs in the back of the top cover. They go into the holes of the bottom of the box. Just use a large screwdriver or something to pry the middle one out. Try lifting the cover in different angles while pushing from behind, or just go ape on it. It'll come off. Losen the clamp of the outgoing hose, it'll help too.

If you had crap on top (post-filter) then you've been sucking dirt into your engine!
