I want to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. I'm going to use a 10 millimeter socket extension ratchet. Loosen this up. Grab the negative terminal. Slide it off. Set it aside so it doesn't arc out by accident. Loosen up this one clamp right here. Also, over here there's a one clamp back here near the throttle body. Loosen this one up with the same straight blade screwdriver. Now take this snorkel off this side, off the air box. And then over here there's two pipes on each side. There's this little gray lock that you have to push down on the lock and then slide it out. Just like that. And you have to do the same on the side. This one I'm pushing up from underneath and then slide it up.

And then I grab this and just slide it back. Wiggle it a little bit and the whole thing comes up. Now we're going to slide this into position. Now there's a little bracket right here that's going to slide into that spot right there. So slide it on the mast, on the throttle body first, and get that lined up there. You can take and slide this on right here onto the air box. That's good. I'm going to take a straight blade screwdriver. Tighten up this one clamp right here on the throttle body. And then tighten this one up as well. Now we'll take these hoses, these are going to clip in. Make sure they lock in place, and the same on this side.

I'm going to take the negative battery cable. Hook it up to the negative side of the battery, and I'm going to take a 10 millimeter socket extension and ratchet. Just snug this up. Grab the cable--just make sure it's nice and tight. Won't loosen up.
