Thanks for your replies.
The fuse box, battery tray, and transmission mounts are out. I have removed the C clips. I even thought there might be two somehow so I blindly felt the underside with a pick to be sure there are no other retainers.
I have tried to pull as straight as possible initially, but I did just go nuts on it after it would not budge. The line holder came out first without me having to intentionally remove it. The CMC was bolted on still, but now there is play and clicking sounds if I push the line in and out as if I have stripped something. I am not sure. I will keep trying.
Anyone think there is a way to remove from the inside?
