CHANGING AIR FILTER

2008 Cadillac SRX

Shakes or Wobbles problem
2008 Cadillac SRX V12 All Wheel Drive Automatic 22,000 miles

when I open hood all I see is trhis massive plastic cover with no easy way to remvove it, I suspect its really simple but not apparent. I assume if the cover is removed the air filter assembly is is a normal screw or clip removal
