To remove the intake , you must remove the allen bolt going straight up next to the charge air tube. It requires a 5mm allen
socket (ball allen if possible).From the top,remove the 10mm nut
securing the washer tank and lift it out of your way.Look under the intake from the side just past the center of it and you will see
the EGR tube (silver corugated tube,not as flexible as it looks)
with a clamp holding it on.Completely remove the bolt in the clamp
(a 1/4 drive 10mm swivel socket works great) and remove the clamp.Knock the tube away from the intake just a little,and it will lift right off.
