Helix FMIC Install Question

First off, thanks ahead of time for any and all help. I did search before and just wanted to clarify some things.

I saw a thread where "#5 had to be removed" for the FMIC to fit snugly. What is that part? I'm having touble having mine fit in well. This stems from the problem of the star bolt on the passenger side not lining up correctly.

As for fitment, the FMIC looks like it fits about 1/4" below the bumper. That is, before the plastic shield gets put back on. I saw someone's pictures of their install and looks about the same. Is that normal?

After putting the hoses on a couple times, I've noticed mine looks way too long and I already trimmed about 1/2" and it still is too long. Did anyone else trim the silicone hose on the driver side?

Thanks again guys!
