I believe this belongs under my post about the intake manifold. I deleted that post b/c I got it off... I'm so smrt, I missed a bolt underneath. It didn't show up on the diagram in my manual so I thought I had them all out. I have do idea how this ended up here though.Originally posted by ryankenn:
I used a rubber mallet to whack mine up and down a couple of times. I also put a screwdriver in the crack and helped it along alittle bit. The problem is ( the first time you take it off anyway ) is that the rear lower and frontmost upper bolts are studs, so the intake has to come off pretty straight.
Just keep away at it, and don't be shy about prying, but try to pry at the two studs, the bottom one at the back and the top at the front. Also, there is a hard tube that bolts underneath and goes around behind the engine, if that's still on it can make it tough. Make sure all the lines underneath are off.
