    Pull up and slide forward. You can be pretty aggressive with it they are quite robust

    If its never been removed like mine hadn't I managed to snap it in 2 places lol! Front left split the hole thing and at the back right ripped the mount off and left a big hole that you can see the air filter through. Good job I don't need it.
