The charged air pipe and hoses run from the induction system and divert air before it reaches the throttle body (red arrow).
Figure 1

The charged air pipe and hoses run from the induction system and divert air before it reaches the throttle body (red arrow). This charged air runs through a pipe that is secured by an 8mm bolt (blue arrow) and T30 Torx (green arrow) and enters the interior by a quick release fitting (yellow arrow).

Begin by using a flathead screwdriver and lifting the quick release fitting (red arrow).
