    Yeah unfortunately typically a one shot deal. They can be clipped back together but not with the same tension.

    I cleaned all my breather pipes out last weekend and replaced with jubilee clips. They are cheap enough that its not an issue.

    Small flathead screw driver under the lip and twist. They are tension clips so once you lift this section they tend to ping open.
