The air induction tube is clamped at each end. Loosen the clamps and you'll be able to remove it.
If you have the V6 and there is no MAF sensor, there will be a MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure sensor).
First, I copied your pic and circled the two clamps top remove from the air induction tube. The second pic shows the MAP sensor location.
Let me know if this helps.
See pics below.
