Trying to remove the box to gain access to the leaking heater water shut off valve. I removed the bolt in the inner fender, but still having trouble. I pushed, pulled and twisted. Nothing happening. I'm sure it's quite simple when you no how.

You are correct (it's pretty easy).

It's all snap fit, so once you remove the bolt you should be able to jiggle everything apart.

Failing that you might try opening the air cleaner box and slipping it out from underneath the inlet, leaving the inlet snapped into the fender.

The plastic is fairly flexible so I think you can be rough without worrying about breaking it.

I don't have any bolts holding my airbox in place. I have the Delphi, not the Donaldson box, Though. Still I didn't think there was a bolt. It's a plastic push pin thing. You just disconnect the intake boots and pull up and maybe slide right.

Trucks don't have the valve. Is it attached to the inner fender?

The valve is inline (floating) with the heater hoses, about 8" from the firewall, controlled by vacuum. I believe it is only used with air conditioning.

That isn't original. Someone has added that.

He didn't mention it but he has a Yukon. Those pieces are on the SUV's with rear heat, IIRC.
