    hey was trying to do the symposer delete and drop in the boomba but unlike the video it appears mine will not come out it is very stuck to the bottom hose i pretty much dont need the clamp on it that is how stuck it is. any ides on how to get the sucker off. my room to get in there is reduced thanks to the extra coolant tube running right over it (thx recall). so now it is very hard to even get in there with meatpaws sized like mine(i can grip a basketball one handed - for reference). ( i cursed every babyhanded engineer during the process)

    Do you have a heat gun or hair dryer? Warm up the hose and see if it's more pliable and easy to work off.

    i wish i had a heat gun but don't . this cheap "upgrade is getting more and more expensive lol" had to fork out 20 bucks for the long bent nose needle nose pliers 50 bucks for the kit now i need a 50$ heat gun if lucky lol.

    i might wait until i do my foglights this weekend and cut the hose 1 inch below. from what i hear it is not a very useful hose anyways.

    You need to twist it loose. If you already tried that, go for a drive and get that hose hot. The symposer won't leak any boost.

    Twist it until it breaks loose, then pull it out. It takes some force. You won't hurt the hose.
    2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!.. OK, I lied. Also added an intake hose and symposer delete. But that really is all, I swear this time! Okay. just one other thing: A mountune RMM. Now I really am done, I promise!

    HEY NOW, tools are an investment!

    But if you don't have them or do not want to spend the cash on them, try what XR650R suggested.

    Use a screwdriver between the symposer and hose to break it loose. Spray some lubricant and twist back and forth. Should pull right out.

    thanks for the ideas i did the screwdriver bit all around and nothing but i was weary of using lubricant since i never had a car with a symposer and i didn't know if lube going down the tube would be bad or not. i will drive it in the morning and give it a go when i park here home.

    i would love to have more tools but not having a garage is what prevents me from having alot of tools around. i left my 10k worth of tools at my pops house in illinois

    also doing automotive work on dirt really sucks and is scary especially when you see the jack sinking into the dirt. the drawbacks of the country i suppose. ill be doing a concrete pad next year so i can do oil changes and stuff.

    You need a sharp pick tool. I have a set of Craftsman that came in different configurations, ie. straight, 90 degree, curved and a twist one. They basically look like a large pin about 4" long but thicker around for just such a job like this. And they were inexpensive.
