Mine were a bastard to move also, I had to wrap some towel around but still lost paint. Very stupid the angles they shipped with.

Damn, seems like you really had a bad experience with this. Why didn't you just install it at a garage ?

Is that the stock hose that lost paint or the one that came with BT ?

Re: How do you remove these two clamps to install a catch-can ?

Guys I think my service center marked this with a white marker to check if I did something to it .. Probably voiding warranty related !! Or did everyone have these ?

Re: How do you remove these two clamps to install a catch-can ?

those little white/yellow markers are on most if not all joints/connectors, etc. You could mod whatever you want to and then before you take it in for servicing/warranty work, restore whatever you need to and just mark those spots again

I've never heard of a catch can voiding a warranty. It would have to be the cause of the failure.

Mine was the same and I did damage the paint on the first fitting I moved (the second of anything in any job is always so much easier...). Repainted with a paint pen, seems to work but indeed should have been different out of the box.

Because it is an easy job that should take about 10 minutes to install, literally. Unfortunately due to BTs sloppiness it has now turned into a PITA. I have to go buy another male-to-male fitting for the backside so it fits and looks better, since one was not provided, and I have to wait for the freezing cold to pass again to get outside and work on it.

-never provided me one initial male-to-male fitting for the 90 degree elbow, it came in the mail a couple days after.
-wrong directions in the box when they knew I had a 6.4L
-can fittings bent down at 45 degree angle and seemingly super glued into place!
-wrong number of silver decorative endcaps (suppose to be 2 small, 2 larger, I got 3 small, 1 large).
-ridiculous price, even though my dumb ass paid it. My one on the WK SRT was $110 during the holiday sale 4 years ago, this one was more than double the price for the same exact options. My carbon fiber one on the Shelby by a different company was also only $100 and of equal quality.

...I'll stop bitching now.

Second, IMO the back connection needs a male to male fitting also like the one they give for the 90 degree elbow (which, BTW, they never included in my original shipment). It would allow a much cleaner install. I cannot get the upgraded hosing over the backside nipple connection with the decorative silver end cap in place.
Woah that was really weird reading your post. I had the exact same issues as you...I mean EXACT!!! I ended up using my spare tire (which I took out to save weight) as a vice to turn the fittings on the catch can. You are 100% right they were pointed down at a 45 degree angle which made them point directly at the PCM/fuse box. I had to turn them so they pointed straight backwards to get it to work correctly. Whew I'm so glad I wasn't the only one having that problem thanks Schlep

Those marks are all over your vehicle. They are used during the inspection process before leaving the factory. A Catch Can WILL NOT Void your warranty.
