      The bottom part of the airbox is held in by a little plastic lookin' piece at the top of it right? Round, with a little circle in the middle? Should be attached to the sidewall...... you have to get a little flathead screwdriver, and get the head underneath the small circle on that plastic piece, and pull it outward which releases the nut thing holding it in. As for getting the bottom piece the rest of the way out, you have to release two snaps holding it to the truck underneath it, which just takes some pulling and a little pressure from underneath where the snaps are...... hope this helps, cause that's how it is on my '95.... good luck!!!

      that is exactly how you do it, just pull the part closest to the motor and had as you can. It will work

      when i took my airbox off, i just put the relay by the headlight (i think, if i can remember back that far), i have since put the box back in. You can easily find somewhere to mount that relay. Good Luck

      Yea just pull upward to get the two knobs out of the holes underneath, you can even get your hand under there and push up on the knobs to help it..... but the relay I'm not sure of cause I didn't have one attached to mine.
