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.

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.
