Opening Air Filter Housing

Can someone please instruct me on how to open the air filter housing? I was under the motorhome planning my attack on this thing but can't quite figure out how to get it open. Sitting upright seems to be the plan as there is alot of room but I'm a little disabled in having a very weak right arm after having a couple of rotator cuff surgeries.

First off turn your front wheels towards the drivers side of coach. Will give you more room to get at air filter box. The box itself has three clips that are sharp, wear gloves, and try to pry with screwdriver a clip at a time at top of box. If you can get them off just open the top, the box will hinge on bottom clips, and should give you enough space to remove old filter.
If bottom clips fall of box just more work to get them all back on.

when you reinstall the box clamps, make sure that the seal is even all the way around and that all the clips are properly installed. otherwise, you can get water and debris sucked into the air box past the seals.
