Noob CAI install question - OEM airbox removal

I've searched the forums for an answer to this, but I couldn't find anything. Maybe it's so obvious that nobody else needed to ask, but I wanted to check with you guys before I do something I might regret.

I bought an AFE CAI for my 2012 5.7L WK2, and the installation instructions say to remove the factory airbox without giving any details on how to do this. Do I just grab the rubber grommets with a pair of needle-nose pliers and yank them off the mounting studs? Is there a better way to do it that I'm missing? I figured I'd ask first before I accidentally damage something.

Thanks in advance for any replies, and apologies for the noob question.

Never mind, I figured it out. You don't even need pliers, you just pull up on the airbox until the studs pop right out of the grommets. Durr.
