I may be being stupid but I cannot figure out how to remove the MAF plug. There looks to be some latches, but I can't see how to release them. Anyone done this who can help?

I finally managed to remove the plug. I hope the attached photo may help other owners, as it is not obvious how to do it.

I have marked up the picture. You press hard on the section enclosed in the 'red box'. The latch hinges along the yellow line. When you get it right you will feel and hear the latch releasing, you can then remove the plug. It does help to push the plug down as you press on the latch.
