They're aftermarket (Wix) filters, but it is 2 for $17.07. That's a good deal; I might have to get those now that it's (sort of) spring.

To the OP's question, yes, the 4 clips detach the cap from the case, and the 2 bolts hold the clean air duct to the body so it doesn't rattle. Removing those two bolts gives the duct enough slack to lift the cap off.
My company designed this setup, incidentally.

Cabin Air Filters became available with the 2011 interior redesign. They're included with the automatic climate control, but they can also be installed in the standard HVAC (duct is the same).
Part number is 55111302AA, and they retail for $21.00 each. Note that it takes 2 (side by side). So, basically it's $42 to add/replace them.

The appendages hanging off the bottom of the intake tube are known as Helmholtz resonators.

Just went through this last weekend. Did anyone notice the I'm assuming water separator hanging off the intake tube? Didn't expect that. Also, if you have the auto hvac, look at your cabin air filter. Holy crap. This is 7000 miles....

|Blastek||yeah, stupid and misleading design. oh hey just unclip these 4 latches and then get a sneak peak at the filter. Now, after borderline breaking the intake, pull out your socket wrench and undo these bolts way over here.|

|ilikeguns||add me to the "stupid" list.. took me a few minutes to figure it out|

|BigCat76||I had the same problem, I felt pretty stupid lol. I love this forum|

The K&N drop in did fit well though.

|NCRUBI2012||Nothing beats the passenger shock space. New Fox would not fit without trimming....and this is after I trimmed to install the lift last month.|

|flyinion||Thanks, I didn't even think about those bolts. WTH that has got to be the stupidest design I've ever seen lol.|

|Mopar2Ya||X3, on the bolts, the engine cover may hit/bind too.|
|04-15-2012 09:26 AM|
|n3qik||2X, need to remove both of those bolts.|
|04-15-2012 09:23 AM|
I just put a K&N in my last weekend. I was in the same situation. But once I removed these two bolts the top cover came right off. With them bolted in, I couldn't get mine to separate enough to replace the filter. I pulled the hose out of the way too just in case.
|04-15-2012 07:16 AM|
It's probably just a little sticky.
Give it a good pull and it should separate. Try near a corner.

|Jeeplover1||thats all there is too it unclip all then pull up|

Engine air filter cover is mocking me!!
Ok, apparently I'm missing something. How in the @#Q#!^$#^@#$^#$@ do you get to the air filter on the 2012? I unlatched all 4 clips but am apparently missing something stupid. I've never had this happen on another vehicle. Always unlatching the clips = cover comes off and air filter is accessed.
