How do you remove these two clamps to install a catch-can ?
 
Hey all,

I have seen many tutorials to install a catch-can, but all of them started with the main metal hose removed.

How do I remove this safely without damaging anything ?

Just use hand pliers to pull the metal tube out..

No twisting needed ? Thought it might be a threaded end.
And will it work just fine by putting it back in ? Or is removing them permanent ?

Removing it is not permanent.. The pipe can still be used back. And, the pipe is not threaded. The L thingy on the right side, you will need to use it back. The male2male hose coupler will go in there.

Cool thanks for replying. Any video that shows this in action ? I'd like to see it being done just in case my imagination fails me haha.

Nope.. There's no video showing the installation. It's actually a simple job. 😄

Alrighty then ! Thanks again :)

In case anyone does have a link to a video, I'd appreciate if you can share the link here.

As others have said no threads it is just a push type connection. I found that a bit of twisting back and forth helped remove the end at the back of the motor but overall pretty straightforward.

What worked for me was getting the engine hot then take a small slotted crew driver and slip it under the rubber hose and lift it a little then spray wd 40 under the hose as i did this 4 times around the hose and let it sit a few min then pull it off a little at a time. Do this on the front 1 also.

So lifting the rubber covers bit by bit along with WD-40 helps ? Will keep that in mind, thanks.

elbow grease. 90 degree angle side pops out easy, do that first. As for backside, hold the rubber connector in your left hand, grab the long plastic pipe with your right and pull as you twist the rubber connector back and forth in your left hand.

Tried to do mine this past weekend, really unhappy with BT. My fittings on the catch can were bent down at a 45deg angle and I have no idea what the hell they did when installing them as I couldn't get them to budge. Wrapped in a towel and used vice grips, etc. Lost most of the paint on one. Finally I was able to move them after inserting a thick screwdriver in the fitting with a long piece of tube I had laying around to create an extension so as to make a longer lever arm. Anyone with this can knows if they are angled down the hoses won't run because they will run into the fuses/control module.

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.
