I did mine with my Father who's a heavy duty mechanic and my Brotherwho along with myself are mechanics. It can be done with a bit of "finaggling" if you don't want to disassemble the whole air intake assembly but your best off to have one or prefferably two helpers. Your best bet is to go the "long" route and take it apart. Tis a truly stupid design most likely created by someone who has never gotten their fingernails dirty. Bets of luck.
