What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video, I'm going to show you how to replace the intake snorkel on this 2013 Cadillac SRX. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

There's a screw right here, I'm going to use a T30, socket extension and ratchet, take that screw out. Pull that out. I'm going to take this oil fill cap off, set that aside. Grab this cover and just pull it up. So I don't drop anything down into the oil, just put the cap back on. There's a bolt right here, I'm going to use a 10 millimeter socket and an electric ratchet. If you don't have an electric one, you can use a regular ratchet. That's tightening, you want to loosen it. That's good. The bolt's going to stay. It's a caged bolt, so leave that there.

Next thing, I'm going to just slide this off right here, this hose, set that aside. I'm going to loosen up this worm clamp right here. I can use the straight blade screwdriver or an eight millimeter socket and ratchet, loosen this up right here. Then there's another clamp right here, I'm going to do the same. With that loose, I can just grab the snorkel right here and then on the backside, pull it up and there's a little grommet on the backside of here. Just pull up on that, just like that. Slide this whole snorkel out.

Now I'll take the snorkel, just going to line this up over here. Line it up on the throttle body and then onto the air box. That's good. Before I tighten that down, there's a little grommet in the back here, just push it down on that and start to tighten this bolt right here. Push that right there. That just kind of hangs out like that. Take my 10 millimeter socket, extension and ratchet, tighten this bolt down.

Take a straight blade screwdriver, we're going to tighten down these worm clamps. You can use this or you can use an eight millimeter socket to tighten them down and a ratchet. We just want to snug it down, not too tight just so it doesn't move. That's good. Then same on the inside near the throttle body. Just tighten that one down as well. That's good. Make sure it doesn't move.

Just going to take the oil cap off. We can take this cover, slide it back in position. When it's lined up, you can just push it down. Push it down right there, and then in the back. That's good. Put the oil cap back on. Take this screw, screw's going to go right there. Just take a T30 socket extension and ratchet and we'll tighten it down.
