E39 air horn removal

This is actually a continuation of Elvis530i 's DIY (thanks for your great DIY and pics on the DIY). i just added a few more pictures and I'm going to explain on how to get that 2nd clip loose.

this is elvis530's DIY. i followed his steps

To get to the 2nd clip, you would have to remove the "L" shaped tube on the top of the airbox.

Then using the hole, you have to look inside and towards where the air horn is. You should be able to see the clip.

using a flat head-screw driver, you have to push clip towards the airhorn so it won't hook onto the airbox.

*the screwdriver head suppose to be on the other side but i wanted to show how the clip is

once both clips are loose, pull that sucker out. good luck.
