I'm trying to remove the heat shield and the hose elbow that is connected from the jet sucker to the brake booster is in the way. Anyone know how to remove these retarded pinch clamps? I don't know why BMW went cheap with these--half pinch clamps and half premium worm clamps...what gives BMW?

edit: got them off--just had to bend that little hook that goes into the middle of the ring. I just wonder what kind of tool really removes and puts on these things. I would like to see it--does anyone have a picture? Surely these things cannot be such a PITA to put on or take off.
