    [partly] derestricted air box just now. need help

    So, since I cant get my car taxed tomorrow I decided to try my hand at doing the how-to derestrict the airbox, certainly i could have chose a better time, like tomorrow but im impatient and had to do it now, in the dark pretty much.

    I opened the air box and couldnt get the first pipe out for the life of me, the plastic wouldnt budge, so i tried the other pipe and managed to get it out with the help of a kitchen knife and a hammer. replaced the box but had difficulty reattaching the metal brace (if someone can tell me how its done, please tell me)

    I'll probably do the "how to" on cleaning the idle control valve because at idle, my car just manages not to stall itself.

    I done it friday night and it all went back fine, you will just need to check every thing is in the right place and make sure nothing is jammed.
