Trying to follow the DIY instructions for replacing the air filter and I got stuck. I can't get the air cleaner housing off since I can't get the MAF conncector off. The instructions say to squeeze the sides but it won't budge. There doesn't seem to be anything to squeeze. I've tried to pull and nothing. I'm afraid to break it.

Can anyone give me the secret?

Thanks!

I find that connector one of the hardest to disconnect. On right flat side, just push really hard, you should feel it move a bit, then kind of wiggle it off.

Thanks! I don't feel totally incompentant now. I will try harder now. The last thing I want to do is break it $$$$

Hello,

While removing a MAF on my 99 C-4, a friend, and fellow 'gearhead' friend just happened to stop by my garage.

Upon seeing my dilemma he jumped in with both hands. Remember, he had no investment here. If it broke off in his hands....

He was/is a more forceful person anyway...

Came right off for him.

Just remember:

'Brute Force Beats Thoughtful Finesse'. Always. Every time.

Good Luck

I'm a big fan of the brute force approach but given the investment, I decided to get a mirror in there and figured out that there is indeed something to squeeze on the hidden side. It comes right off when you squeeze the little clip. Voila. Thanks!
