    Intake pipe

    ive just bought a viper induction kit, and i've just shoved the cold air feed onto the back of the existing intake. Oh yeah, its a g coupe.

    How the hell do you get the old one out?? ive removed the two screws and it moves, but the trumpet part won't fit back throught the space above the radiator.

    Any ideas?

    look in the How tos for fitting a vectra c pipe - same process to remove it. You'll need a big screwdriver to get the clips off the old pipe.

    I had the same problem with mine. After attacking it and shouting at it for 15mins or so I couldn't get the original one out, so Ive left it. I was even planning to take the slam panel off but I figured that it really cant be that difficult. Got the Veccy pipe in the boot ready to be fitted but just havnt got round to it yet.

    If you sucessful please PM me and let me know how you managed to get it out.
