Pictures attached.

    Thank you

    Should pull out, maybe try to push the little tabs inward a little bit on the intake tube that's sticking inside the box. Alternatively, it may be held on by the nut circled in red here on this diagram. I used to have an N/A but can't remember if it pulled out entirely or if it had something keeping it in place.

    Pull it straight out, you wont break it. Maybe spray it with some WD-40 to make it a tad easier to slip off. Those 4 slits(cuts) you can see on the hose is so the tabs can bend slightly so it doesn't break and fit snugly.

    It pops off if you man up and pull on it.

    Did what you said, sprayed it with wd40, its actually quite dificult to get it out, its more of a concern to break a hard to come by part... But in the end managed to get it off as it was intended, just needs a real good pull. Thank you once again
