Alternative to taking off Airbox

As an alternative to taking off the entire Airbox/Cowl assembly my friend suggested removing the circled part (I believe its an A/C compressor) by simply taking off the two thread locked bolts immediately to the right of the red circle. Once you remove the compressor (it is connected with soft tubing so there is plenty of play to just move it aside) you can get one arm in from the front and your other arm straight down between the air box and fender. Having 2 hands in there to work on un-clipping the tab makes things a whole lot easier.
