|amc49||The inner ring WILL come out, but sometimes they break doing it. Also, if anyone has pulled on pipe or tube first, then the teeth lock in to the pipe/tube and will not release easily. Even vibration can make the teeth settle in deeper into pipe. If you treat them gentle they come right out. I used to use fittings like that on printing press gluer/silicone/softener units and 50 at a time. We yanked lines left and right for job changeups.|

I first used a white plastic AC/fuel line removal thinking the red clip needed to be pushed down...didnt work. Thats whey I pulled it up and it popped out.
Looks like one person says push, the other says pull.
Regardless, its out.

You guys are crazy............Push IN on the clip and the hose releases instantly, it's a quick release fitting. No need even to take it apart. When on assembly line the assembly tech simply pushes hose in and it locks. There are small teeth inside that grab hose, pushing ring in releases them.
You can find same type fitting at Home Depot in plumping department but Ford in its' infinite wisdom has made sure to use bastard one off size so not easily replaceable.

|Buickboy||hmm maybe some combo of clip and pulling. maybe pop the clip before pulling up? anyway too little too late now lol. hopefully someone will search and find this in the future|

As for the intake getting hot....I am not concerned about that. The incoming air heated up in the stock intake and heats up even more when it enters the head. Thanks for the heads up though.

just to let you know, it comes out nice and easy but yanking on it wont get it out. that red thing is a clip, pull up on the hose then pop the clip up with a small flathead
took me a while to figure that one out, almost broke it too

|koke'sfocus||If u r going n/a I would suggest put on a spacer between the head and manifold the mani gets really hot without it|
