I was given the right advice but reccomend that you soak the bottom line real good with the PB I was told to use. I used Liquid Wrench and it never came loose.
I took the induction (air intake) off and loosened the top line rather easily. After that, I tried loosening the bottom line. I never got it off and wound up in the shop. It's because that fitting is exposed to the ground and elements and makes it tough to get off. The firewall bolts that hold the filter in place are cumbersome to get off but wit a little patience and scraped knuckles, you'll get em' off.
Don't do what I did. Use the PB penetrant and let it soak, soak, soak.
What a dumb design, that filter should be exposed on top!
Next time it's PB for me.
