    how do i release these clips? mine is still on the car, trying to get them from engine bay.



    they aint jubilee clips just a pressed steel ring.. i dont want to cut them in case i catch the pipes and damage them, will they just pull off with some force? or is there a nack to it..

    this pick is off google but im thinking about changing mine, and couldnt seem to pull the rubber pipes off the ally pipe..

    will i have to release it from the outlet of the intercooler and get the whole section out of the engine bay?

    any advice would be great..

    There is a bulge/flange in the ally pipes that will prevent them from just pulling off, but if you cut the steel rings first they will pull off (some force required I expect)

    Do they not pry open with a screw driver and then replace with adjustable jubilee clips?

    I used a hacksaw to get mine off, then used Mikalor clamps to refit. Works a treat..
    Just cut at a 45 degree angle being careful not to cut the pipe.
