Helppppppp Please

So im installing a cxracing fmic on my car and i cant figure out how to remove this clip for the intercooler piping. Its been 2 days and i need help. Im currently under my car so if anyone can help that would be awesome.

And i thought the hard part( drilling the bumper support was over, FML).....


Not letting me upload pics right now but its what the quick disconnect connects to, the 90 degree piece that connects to pipe going into charge pipe. Think its called lower intake pipe.... mines is 2 piece... need to disconnect lower 90 degree part...

pretty sure you cut that band with a dremel.

2 days?

As mentioned, dremel, or get a small screwdriver under there to create enough space to clip it with a pair of snips.

There is a number of ways to skin that cat. All you need to do is cut the metal band - use a grinder with a cut-off wheel, a dremel, snips, etc., as it has already been mentioned. Nothing special here - just go slow and be careful to not cut too deep.
