I can't believe I am having to post this but I cannot get the clips undone that attach the intake pipes either side of the AFM
They seem a fairly simple clip together mechanism but they have a sort of channel with a sliding tab in it. They have CLIC-R (IIRC) written next to them. A glance around the engine bay demostrates that I am going to need to work the pesky little b**gers out - is there a trick to them?
I feel slightly retarded but I don't want to risk brute force as it I break anything the only chance I would have of replacing it today would be Halfrauds....
Squeeze them together with a pair of pliers then use a small flat-ended screwdriver to prise the clip open. They're also not so easy to clip together again either (especially the tiny ones) so I suggest that when putting everything back together you just replace them with some standard jubilee clips of the same diameter
