This came off AEM's website, Looks like it pulls straight up, I think those are clips not bolts

Removal of stock system
a. Loosen the hose clamps attaching the primary stock intake pipe to the throttle body and the primary stock
intake pipe to the mass air flow sensor.
i. Remove the primary stock intake pipe.
b. Disconnect the wiring harness from the mass air flow sensor.
c. Remove the mass air flow sensor from the stock intake piping using the supplied torx tool and set aside as it
will be used in the installation of the AEMŽ intake. Be careful not to damage the mass air flow sensor.
d. Remove the breather hose from the valve cover to the air cleaner housing.
e. Remove the air cleaner housing from the vehicle. This is done by pulling straight up on the housing. There
are no bolts holding the housing in.
f. Unfasten the battery by removing the battery strap.
g. Carefully lift the battery out of the car and place in a safe place.
h. Remove the battery tray.
i. NOTE: Be sure to disconnect any harnesses that may be attached to the tray.
i. Remove the two plastic hold downs from the secondary intake tube.
j. Remove the secondary intake tube from the engine mount by lifting straight up.
k. Remove the secondary intake tube through the front of the vehicle.

shouldnt have to mess with the bolts on the bottom, maybe if the bolt came off the bottom of the housing, you could hand-loosen while pulling up on the screw, so the nut on the bottom would seat back into where it should be
