Yah, I guess you're right, but it's not worth it.
Just cut the thing and don't worry about it.
Are you reusing these clamps then?

Drive the screwdriver under the clamp right at that line and twist....HARD. If you get the screwdriver underneath right at that clamp and twist it will release and you can just take the clamp off.

If you cant get to the connection point....then like Mr. 5 said you'll need to cut it

once you have access to those clamps you can have those unclipped and ther intercooler out in less than 5 minutes.

I've done quite a few intercooler installs at this point and only 1 car needed a clamp cut off.
