I remember doing that when i took off my airbox to replace the charge pipe. The only thing was the clamp. If not you're just gonna have to use some elbow grease. Also, im pretty sure what I ended up doing was using a flat head screwdriver kinda like a lever (kinda pushed against the ridges) to get it all the way on. Good luck broham.
