it would probably be easier on those to unscrew the clamp that clamps half of the filter housing, then the housing will just slip off. is it a gt or v6? not sure on the gts but on the v6 you might want to take out that electrical connector on the side right by the filter housing, so you dont end up ripping it off by accident. it is just a little barb clip that you can pull straight out. hope this helps. now i see it is a gt. when you get the new one in it would be easier to put the housing back together, snap it shut, and then put the air tube back on and screw it down.
