W126 V8 ICV replacement procedure

I have just picked up my new idle control valve for my 1989 560SEL.

Looking at the unit it looked relatively easy to replace however quickly starting the job I get as far as removing the electrical connector and undoing the clamp but it appears the two air hoses are holding everything in place.

I haven't removed the air cleaner assembly or anything else yet and I don't want to just pull on the hoses until I am sure that they won't break.

Is there any special trick to replacing this or do I just pull it off the two hoses?

Make sure to remove the air filter housing so as to give you better access to the idle valve. Make sure the clamp is completely loose around the valve, and gently move the valve side to side to slip it from the hoses on the side. Make sure to support the rear of the valve so as not to torque the hose fitting in the top of the plenum boot. You can simply twist the valve back and forth and slowly extract it from the hoses.

Try a little silicone spray on the hoses to give you a little slippery advantage upon installation.

Good luck,
