For those who have Jim Lills or R Kelly CAI

I tried looking at these two threads but I couldn't find the answer I need<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=55492" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=55492</A><br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=43909" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=43909</A><p>I'm now stuck in the middle of the project. I am having problem disconnecting the MAF and the intake pipe beyond the MAF. I tried twisting and pulling but still couldn't pull the Intake box with MAF out. I already unbolted all the bolts holding the airbox and lossen the big metal O "thing" that clamp both the MAF and the intake pipe. I just need a way to sepreate those two things. Thanks in advance!

Makes the hard plastic a bit softer. Maybe you could use a hair dryer to heat it up a little.

Why are you disconnecting the MAF or the intake pipe? No need to do anything other than open airbox and remove filter temporarily to complete this install if you have my kit.<p>When I did my install, I never disconected airbox (dealer did when working on engine, why I have those pics). <p>But you don't need to. Just pop the snow valve out, drop the outlet in, put the clamp on the hose and connect hose to outlet that is sticking out the bottom of air box. <p>Can do all that by feel, no need to remove air box.

Thanks everyone especially Johann. You saved my day. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> My car was parked in the garage for a day before I did the intake work this evening and warm it with the hair dryer made it alot easier taking the MAF/airbox out.

No need to remove airbox if you did buy one of mine, so thread title is a little misleading...

it has a little trick to it. works cold or warm. <p>once you have the 3 main bolts that hold the airbox down, have taken off the solenoid on the side, taken off the MAS sensor wireand loosened the clamp just behind the MAS <p>then just grab and lift straight up on the front of the airbox. lift is straight and the MAS pops easily out of the hose it is in. install is just reverse fo this<p>bryan

I saw your pictures in your other thread that you took the whole airbox out when I started the thread so I thought you did disconnected the MAF and intake pipe. However, after seeing your other reply, you didn't take the airbox out but the dealer did. Anyway, the problem solved and there is no need to figure out who's fault that is.
