Officers were attacked in the Falls Road area close to Belfast City Cemetery on Friday 14 March.
No-one was injured but a family with young children, who had been driving in the area at the time, were caught up in the blast. A group calling itself the IRA later admitted responsibility.
Police investigating the incident arrested a 44-year-old in west Belfast on Monday.
He was taken to Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning before his release.
