    Breather pipe removal

    Hey all. Can anyone advise how I go about removing this pipe? I can't see any Clip at this end and it's the one that has gunk from oil and want to clean it. It's centre of below image.

    Yellow clip is usually vacuum pipe. You compress the clip, usually fingers will do it as they're not tight, and the connection will pull apart.

    I think it's the pipes above the yellow click that I'm stuck with. Can't see any clip on them. Less your saying the yellow thing below releases the pipes above?

    Hard to tell from the photo, but I'd suggest you need to do some dismantling to get at it properly.

    They vanish into that black plastic under and behind the throttlebody. I'll ask my mate next week when I'm back at work.
