Default Removing the AT sensor from intake tube

Any tricks or info I should know before trying to remove the AT sensor during a new CAI install? Thanks, Sean

Peace be unto you and your loved ones...DO NOT LET THE DARK SIDE GET YOU....I swear I almost torched my truck and watched that stupid AT sensor burn in hell.....No seriously tho, it sucked really bad...Spent about a hour twisting, prying, bending etc etc....Finally I got the bright idea to used multi purpose oil just underneath the plastic lip, on the outside of the tube....I slowly worked the oil in and it finally came out...Don't pull, pry or twist too hard or this piece will break...You figure they would make it screw in or something....

It just pulls out, the twisting helps break the seal, that's all. I don't know what the issue was above, but they normally come out just fine. Oh, and be careful about putting oil into the sensor area like that, you can toast the sensor the same way as over oiling a CAI filter.

I broke mine trying to get it out. Stupid design if you ask me. Luckily oreilly's had one in stock. 34$ and i was set. I sprayed a very small amount of wd40 on the new vararam tube and it slid right in. The instructions said it was ok and the oil definitely didn't hurt anything. I wouldn't spray it directly on the sensor though... just for good measure.

Maybe being a new truck it will be clean enough to come out easy. I hope. Thanks all for the help, Sean

Yeah mine came right out too.e

I twisted it anti and clockwise a few times B4 gently pulling while still jiggling.

Came right out.

You'll be fine.

Thanks. Now if the weather and kids would get together and give me a break so I could spend an hour on the truck, I'd get it installed.

this is true, I have broke them a time or 2 myself and they are cheap to replace if you do break one on accident

Thanks
