for the airbox you must remove all the clips, there are a couple on the front, and there are two behind it, i used a screw driver to pop those off

The "Do not open" warning is crap. Its your computer, if you want to open it, go right ahead. If I was painting I would remove the entire box, not just the lid. Paint it & the vent pipe for cooling your ECU.

just don't touch the computer itself because if you get a static discharge your ecu will fry...
