I'm not sure how to disconnect these hoses from the cover. I'm thinking I should just pull them out with the plastic ring but wasn't certain. Could you help? 2014 X1 sdrive btw. Click image for larger version

They look like they should just pop out.
Have you grabbed the engine cover and pulled it out?

To quote a fellow redditor:

Quote:
See the plastic clips holding them? They open up, and you can take the harness out. They have overlapping clips that lock them closed. You pry them out (one in each direction), and the clip will open up.

It's hard to explain, but once you start fiddling with it, you will see how it works.
