Last I remember, You simply grab it tightly and pull up. If I remember again, it's held in with rubber gromets.

I love aftermarket intakes *cheery feeling* haha

Yeah, when I had to do mine, I was actually thinking ahead and put a nice thick pair of leather work glove son before I gave it the almighty HEAVE HO! and popped it out, sucker is in there nice and good.. its nice to use some WD40 for about 10 minutes prior to soften the grommets up and get any sticky grime out form between them =)
