Its stuck on the throttle body?Or is the air filter lid giving you trouble?

It's stock on the Throttle body and the air filter outlet. The air filter lid is not giving me a problem. Also How do I loosen that really skinny coiled clamp that is attached to the air filter outlet?

On the throttle body I would use what is called a hose pick its a long 90 degree pointed pick used to loose the opening of hoses stuck on there connections. You just have to becarefull not to put a hole in the hose. Also could use a regular 90 degree pick or small pocket screwdriver. On the air box side it looks like the spring is only used to hold a little tension on the hose. Try just pulling the hose off or try lighly prying it off.

Great! I'll try that! It's also stuck really good on the vaccum hose as well. Wil the same pic or pocket screwdriver work on that as well? I really appreciate your advice. : -)

I replaced the air intake duct on Friday. It just took 10 mins and I got the pick set that you mentioned at Wal-Mart for around $5.00 that pulled the hoses right off real nice and it's all back together execpt for the thin spring like clamp on the air filter housing side of the duct. I can't figure out how to get it back on. I can't stretch it enough to put it over the hose. However the duct is on the airfilter housing very tight so I'm thinking when I have the brakes done on the car in a few weeks by my buddy I'll just have him slip that spring clamp on for me real quick. Thank you for all of your help.
