I have been thinking about fitting a CAI to my S3 8P but at the moment I am wondering how do you undo the nasty hose clamp where the plastic tube from the original air filter goes down the back of the engine to the RHS of the master cylinder?
There is not a lot of access and so the conventional plumbers pipe grips or squeezy clamps have no room to get a grip.
Would I be correct in thinking that these would do the job?

Also if this is the correct tool, do you attack this clip from the top or up from underneath?
What is the current thinking of CAI quality and fitment? I am only interested in a super quality item where appearance is excellent and there are no issues in the fitting.
