1st time plenum removal...my new tool of choice !

Just finished rebuilding my throttle actuators and this was the first time I had to remove the plenums on the car. I was a bit worried about getting the plenums off after reading some posts and looking at the clamps hidden underneath, but I found this flexible extension that maintains the shape you put it in and turns internally. Turns out, it makes taking the clamps off a breeze ! The hex end is just a bit bigger than the 6 mm clamp heads so the ones in the back by the power steering reservoir were also simple by just using the hex on the end vs. the socket attached.

Figured I would share just in case someone is planning to take their plenums off in the near future and are looking for the flexible drivers
