Angry Replacing Air Mass Boot Sensor in X5...HELP

Ok guys, recently my air mass boot sensor cracked in my X5, and i have a problem, there is something in the way of replacing it:

What is that box, and how would i go about removing it?

Also the boot looks like this:

Where that quarter is, that is what happened to mine. Is there ANY way or ANYthing i can put to seal it up to drive it to work tomorrow, I will be replacing the boot after work once I find out how to remove that thing, but I have no other way of transportation to work tomorrow, and the boot being cracked is the problem. I need a temporary solution to patch that up so please help me! Thanks

Wow, dead forum around here. Anyways, for anyone who finds this thread in the future... that little black box can be removed with a socket wrench, no harm done as long as you put it back in place. I had to remove the lower air duct on my '00 328i (same layout) with a razer blade, then removed the hose clamp, then installed the new duct with new hose clamps. It's really quite a simple job.

okay i just did mine. the box you speak of is eally not in the way. the boot is a bitch to replace. especially the small hose that goes to your icv. i'm interestd to know if that solves all your issues. replacing mine helped but i still have a rough idle issue. a 6mm box wrench was the only thing i was able to fit in the space to tighten the clamp. good luck
