7mm socket for clamps
Step 2. Remove pipe retention bolt and remove intake pipe
Intake pipe removed with retention bolt
Step 3. Unclip top of box and remove air filter
Remove sensor clips with flat head screwdriver, I removed the clip from the box rather than remove the harness from the clip.
Airbox top and filter removed
Step 4. Unbolt intake snorkel
Step 5. Pull up on the air box until it pops out of its rubber grommets
A bit of gentle upward force will be required, be careful not to pull to quickly.
Step 6. Remove TIP (If needed)
Unbolt tip and disconnect the vac and pcv lines. Losen the clamp where the TIP meets the turbo inlet behind the engine. Once loose, wiggle the TIP out, pulling up and pushing toward the firewall worked best for me.
Step 7. Unbolt snorkel from airbox
Step 8. CAREFULLY remove the snorkel from the airbox
Fixing the Snorkel Step 1. Find Crack
The plastic on the snorkel is brittle and even if you follow above you might still crack it. This should be repaired before re-install as the break may cause undesirable noise, or it may just bother you that it is broken.
Fixing the Snorkel Step 2. Use a qucik drying/curing super glue
Clamping this part for a good flexible RTV seal is tough so we want to hold it with some basic superglue first. I had some Gorilla glue around, it has a 24 hour cure time but dries solid enough to hold that part together after 30-60 seconds.

Fixing the Snorkel Step 3. Apply RTV
RTV or liquid gasket is tough and flexible, a coat of this over the crack should allow the part to behave as before and perhaps even be a bit less brittle. RTV will also give you a chance to smooth things out a bit to prevent any unwanted noises from the distorted snorkel mouth.
RTV applied after 18 hours glue cure time
RTV was allowed to cure for 6 hours before installation
