ChalupaJones There's a little notch in each one that you can slip a thin flathead screw driver or even a butter knife into and raise up the center portion of the clip. Once you do that you can pull out the whole thing.

benzondubs Inner (top cap) needs flipped out first to release the catch so that the whole thing (2 pieces) can come out. The clip Jacks open when it's in the in position

Scrubs Trying to do this right now but the 4 clips from the beggining are hard to pull out, am I supposed to force them out (which might break them)..

Marbs Just finished doing this and the removal of the snorkel was a LOT easier than I thought it would be. Now finding the screw driver that flung out of my hand and fell to the bottom of the engine bay wasn't so easy .

Just sent the new data log to Tom to get the final tune sent and loaded.

Now I have more clips to add to my clip collection drawer of my tool box, and gotta figure out if the snorkel is garage art, or just garbage.

Same happened to me, not only my hands were durty but cut all over!

Be careful, those clips break very easily too... I broke some...

It is flexible enough to stay intact, though cold weather may have its influence.
I did mine in the summer and was able to remove it without braking anything, should admit though I pulled really hard!
