Air filter removal

Got my new GT yesterday and it is now snowing in England.
So drinking coffee stearing at her. Want to drive it though.
After a while stearing decided to look into the insides. Pannel off and am wondering how I get the air filter out? Removed the bottom clip/ unclipped the top of the housing. The front inlet pipe to the air filter housing is sliding a bit forward now but not enough to take it out.
Do I have to remove any other screws?

By the way I have a 92' GPZ 900 as well doing all the service and repairs myself for the elast 12 years.
A bit of technological advance happened in bikes over the last 16 years. What a surprise.
The GT has about 10 times the tech stuff than my old bike.

Thanks for any Help
Regards
Dirk

There are two screws on the ZFE box. One on top and one to the left. Much easier to move the entire box out of the way. There is also a slip pin on the inside of the snorkel that snaps into one of those rubber grommets. That needs to be pulled out before you slip the snorkel forward to remove the air cleaner.

That's because it was written up on the Stebel horn mounting. Good grief, you'd think you'd know when I'm writing about a Stebelthat I'm really mean the air filter.

Reckon that should be done right?
