    URGENT Destrict Airbox HELP!!

    Taken airbox apart but HOW do u remove those pipes?

    The pipe in the airbox is connected to the intake pipe from the grille ... so if this pipe is removed how is the intake pipe supposed to be reconnected???

    Secondly, the pipe in the lid is a strethener so that when the jubili clip is reconnected it doesnt squash the outer pipe ... and i can seem to remove this anywayz, it wiggles but doesnt come out...

    Please help ... i still have the airbox in pieces ... and i wanna do this mod today b4 i go off on holiday...

    thanx

    Photo's:



    Airbox lid ... that pipe is stuck in there ...



    Where my finger is pointing... thats where the inner pipe protrudes outside.. without this pipe being there out does the intake pipe from the grille attach to the airbox?

    It might cause a prob with my warranty cos my local vaux is picky so ill wait till june when my last "warrantied" service is due.

    Cheers.

    The pipe is'nt stuck...just stubborn !
    try harder, but be careful with your hands.

    Where your finger is pointing....the inner pipe is seperate from the outer pipe.

    no cutting, just push them in and it pops, slides out.
    so it can all go back as it was, all very tight push fit!
