A long Phillips screwdriver is what you need to loosen the clamp that is further in. Once both clamps have been loosened you can pull the air box back towards the gas tank to get it off of the rubber boots and then slide it out.

Yup, long Phillips screwdriver on the other carb boot and it should come out. Get the flashlight out!

I used a magnetic bit screwdriver with an extension to get to the mag side carb.

Be careful when reinstalling. Make sure to get that back spigot over the carb completely before snugging the clamp

Also, careful not to overtighten as it's just plastic that the clamp is tightening against.

And I think that air box adds a lot of weight and torque to the carb sockets, causing premature tearing. I take a long zip tie and wrap it around the carb assembly and up to the frame. Snug it just enough to add some support so those intake runners aren’t always under tension

Or run pod filters, no air box to deal with and no stress on the boots!
