They are just held in by o rings. Very carefully wiggle it while pulling. Just curious, why are you needing to change them?

I know the tubes you are talking about as I just did mine. I found it very awkward to remove also. If you bought the felpro intake kit it has those o-rings to replace, you could try spraying a little carb cleaner into their seats which will help loosen those old o-rings up making them more plyable.

Thanks guys for the Quick repys :banana: I'm changing them because they have not been changed yet and they are leaking pretty bad. I have to add oil and coolant at times.
