2018 RLX air filter

I'm trying to inspect the airfilter and I sw that the MAP sensor to connected to the housing.
Anyone figured out how to remove the MAP sensor cablle without cutting the tiewrap?

No reason to remove the Map sensor or any wiring. There are 4 screws that are easily visible on the air filter box. Unscrew them and lift up the cover for the air filter. You can slide out the old filter and slide in the new one, then tighten the screws back down. Simple.

There is no room to do it, I tried it already.

You may have to jiggle the top of the air box to release it. Maybe I am not understanding what you are talking about. Can you take a picture of what you are referring to? You can always go to a quick oil change store or the dealer and they can show you how to do what I am trying to direct you to do. Once you see it one time, it will be easy to do it moving forward.

Just checked mine, all good. The lid only lifts about 4" on the one side allowing the filter to slide in and out. The wiring does not inhibit movement of the cover.

Some Honda/Acura vehicles figure you only need to open the air filter housing "just enough" to slide the old one out - even though you'd assume it should open further. I haven't tried our '18 yet with only 3k miles, but in earlier cars you had to use magician's slight of hand to get them in sometimes (even without a wire loom/tie holding it down)....
