Question Help - Air Intake Sensor Removal

Howdy,

Any tips or pictures, on the best way to remove the air intake sensor.

I recall reading another thread, saying it was a real ***** to do.

It's on a R/T 5.7L by the way.

Cheers

Removing and replacing the sensor was by far the hardest part of my CAI install. After the fact, someone gave me the advice of using rubbing alcohol to lubricate the rubber grommet. The moisture will help, but because it is alcohol, it will evaporate quickly. Hope that helps.

Forgive my stupidity but if you are talking about the sensor that is connected to the air intake, I just reached up in there and pushed while I pulled. I wiggled it around a bit and it came right out.

Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?

mine wouldnt come out for anything...i eventually took two putty spreader things ( anything flat and wide with a handle would work) and used them to pry the b*tch out. I was 30 seconds from just cutting it out of the stock tube. getting it in the afe tube was even worse. I had to make the hole bigger with a file and it was still extremely tight. ( if you have to do that make sure you get all the shavings out of the tube).. I have a 3.5L though.

Yup... dish soap is the best... it rinses and cleans up easily. PLUS oil will break down rubber and rubbing alc will dry it out.
