Guys I have a wj jeep, im trying to put my k&n CAI on but Im having trouble with the last part of removing the stock intake. I cant get this last screw off to remove the air box completly. How do I do it. Ive checked under the car but I cant see it there either. How did you guys remove yours. thanks for the help, here is a pic of that screw.

Re: Help!!!!
well I got the screw off under the car, now the vent hose inside diameter is too small to fit onto the jeeps part. Anyone else have to make the diamter bigger on the hose to fit, or stretch it?

Re: Help!!!!
Happy you got the bolt off. Sorry that I wasn't on here sooner.

Umm...its a snug/tight fit. It almost doesn't want to go over thats how tight it is.

Re: Help!!!!
well i got it installed and it sounds pretty good. Yea it is a tight fit. I used a tool to stretch out the vent hose to make it wider and warmed it up, then it fit on. Nothing like working on your jeep in 20 degree weather. Luckily i was in a garage but still cold. I also cleaned out the engine bay where the stock intake was because it was filthy and didnt want to dirty the new intake. i snapped two quick pics of it with my cell phone. here they are.

Looks pretty good!! Congrats on the successful install!

Might wanna get a recharge kit tho. The filter looks like it might need some oil...

Re: Help!!!!
yea, i recharged before i put it on. i didnt want to put too much oil but its coated pretty good with the k&n oil, its got one even spray on each crease.
