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.

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.
