    With all the bolts removed you can now remove the panel.

    Note that there is a pin on the outer panel that mates onto the side

    With the panel off, we need to access the air snorkle, this is done by first removing the computer mounted on the side

    The bolts are identified with the green arrows, the one in at the 9 o'clock position is behind a wire harness

    Now you have complete access to the air snorkle which when removed allows you full access to the air filter.

    To remove the snorkle you need to unclip (in 2 places) the air box section and then pull off the snorkle from its pinned attachment
