    Thankyou

    this is my first time posting on this forum, only found it a few days but i has helped me and my astra 1.6 sxi no ed already.

    after reading about other problems people had had on here and speaking to my mechanic about similar problems i was having, my sxi is now running like a dream.

    i had really bad knocking in my front suspension over rough and bumpy roads - new drop links fixed that for me,

    i had kangarooing in 1st and second gear whilst moving in traffic - a good clean of the EGR valve and throttle body has fixed that.

    now the car runs smoothly, handling has gotten better and throttle response and acceleration have improved drastically!

    so i just wanted to say a big thank you for this great forum it has been very helpful.

    now over with the thank you's and onto the questions.

    i was just reading the how to de-restrict your air box guide so i though i would give it a go myself. unfortunately i got as far as removing the first pipe before encountering a problem. Basically i cant squeeze the hooks that hold the pipe in place enough to pull it out, is there any hints or tips you guys have that can help?

    thank you in advance
