Default Torque Tube filter cleaning help

Has anyone removed the filters from the torque tubes to clean them? I can't figure out how to get them off. I loosened the clamps but they won't budge. I don't wanna break anything trying to force them.

Take a set of channel locks and grab it where the filter sets on the intake. You should not have to squeeze the hell out of it. If you have ever changed out a radiator hose you have probably had this problem.

I don't know about the jackpot but on the Vegas you can get to the one on the left side. If you get it off it should open up enough room to get to the other one.

Piece of cake, I've done it several times. Loosen the clamps, give a little twist, they come right off.

I figured you had already tried to us your hands. If not I would definitely try that first.
