Default Getting screw from bottom of airbox out

I am trying to get a screw from the bottom of the front airbox out. It is impossible to reach. Any tips would be great. It is the front one closer to the headlight, where the filter generally sits.

Mine'* a 94 but not sure if your box is similar in how it'* screwed in. But the one screw holding mine down on the bottom was a huge PITA to get out. I don't think I was able to do it without removing the accordian tube first.

Hmm, must be different then, my accordian tube is far away from the bottom screw. There is a little plastic overhang on the screw, which is what makes it hard to reach. I will probably just cut around it to give myself access.

Mine doesn't have a screw at the bottom. Take the accordian tube off and the back side of the airbox. Then the two front screws out and the bottom is just a little peice of metal stuck into some rubber. Just pull up on it and it slips right off.

Update: Well you guys were right, after the 2 screws at the top, the front part of the airbox simply slides out.
