Homelite Trim n Edge 25cc String Trimmer and removing the carburetor

I have a Homelite String Trimmer (Model UT20024A Manufactured May 2005) and I am having difficulty removing the air filter box to get to the carburetor. I have removed the air filter cover and the air filter itself. I removed the 2 nuts that are holding the air filter box in place. I expected the air filter box to just fall off; instead, it only wiggles slightly to the left or right. I can see the carburetor wiggling to the left or right as well. I tried pulling harder, but the air filter box does not seem to budge. I do not see any more bolts holding the air filter box in place. Is there something I am missing? Or do I just need to pull harder? Thanks in advance.

Pull harder... sounds like the gasket has it stuck.

Try using a small flat head screwdriver and stick it between the carburetor and air box on back and then pry it back and forth and see if that loosens it.

Thank you for these responses. I pulled on one side and then the other and eventually, the air filter box loosed up and came off.
