airbox removal, stripped bolts

Is there any way of removing the airbox without first taking the filter cover off? I went to change the air filter on my new OG9-3 only to find the bolts won't come out. The heads are stripped and rusty, looks like someone used a regular allen key on them. I can probably figure out some way of removing them, but it looks like it would be way easier if I could pull the whole box out first. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There are three nuts that fasten onto corresponding metal tabs welded onto the inner fender. They will likely be as tough to get to as the filter cover.
