I just use a large Phillips #3 Screwdriver, not a big issue. I also loosen the hose clamp from the filter to the engine and pull the hose loose from the air filter housing. Nut driver would work best on this, but I just used a slotted screwdriver, one of my larger ones, probably 5/16" blade? It is tight, but I can then remove the filter without needing to undo the sensor connector. My memory is that the wiring to the sensor also had a clamp that had to be removed as well, without removing that, unhooking the connector didn't buy you anything.
I had Autozone order me a filter two weeks ago. They offered to ship it direct to my address, so I had it shipped to my office. No extra costs over the $17 cost of the filter. Ordered on a Saturday, arrived on Wednesday, although it was promised for Tuesday.
I just can't justify buying 6 at a time on Amazon or Rock Auto and having to find a place to store them.
