Breather hose help

Hey guys I could really use some help.

Iím trying to install my Volant intake and I wanted to remove the breather hose and replace it with a breather filter. Iím stumped on how to remove the U shaped hose that connects to the valve cover. Itís like it was cemented on or something. Do I just pull it straight out; or is there some trick to it, like twisting a certain way?

Thanks.

Here is a picture of what I'm talking about:

hahha its easy bro

just pull it straight out cus its got a little insert in the end which comes out of the valve cover to connect to it

oh and what i did was i discovered that the aftermarket hose that they give with cold air intakes will fit over that tab perfectly so i just cut a little portion of it and put my filter on that looks good too

If you really don't need it, you could always cut it off and cut off a piece on the other end to connect the filter with.

The Volant intake is the highest quality you can buy for the focus, it actually out flows any intake out there and uses the factory snorkel while in a heat shielded box.

Really no comparrison to any other intake out there.

i did the same.. easy.. get a flathead and wedge it in to losen it.. then yank it off.. get the breather filter and wedge it on the tube.. it'll be a little big but it'll work..

Thanks for all your suggestions. I was pretty sure that it just needed to be pulled off but I didnít want to risk damaging anything. I ran out of daylight so I'm going to try and get it on tomorrow. You can probably see from my picture why I want it off; it looks like its rotting away. Every time I touch it powder comes off so I figure itís just a matter of time.

I did get the Volant installed, and wow. Now I usually donít buy it to the hype associated with a product, otherwise I'd have a 275HP focus that gets 185MPG lol. But what they say about the Volant is true. It is the single best mod I've done to the SPI. It blows my old full length cold air intake away. Itís very high quality.

It's a BDR (Black Diamond Racing) Throttle Body. I got it for $179.99 off of CFM's website.

It was $5 more than eBay, but I think it was well worth the money with the results I've gotten.
