ok im trying to remove the timing belt cover on my mk iv 2.0 to access the cam gear... however i cant get it off... i undid the two tabs but there is some hose thats in the way (a hose attached to the intake manifold right above the belt cover). i cant pull the hose out either it seems to be stuck pretty hard on the nozzle of the manifold its connected to. also i dunno but is the nozzle supposed to be pointed at an angle? or is it supposed to be parallel to the floor... cuz its pointed down a little bit.

Ya, Its a real pain in the a**, I hate that cover. You just have to wigle it and
pull on it ^^*UP WARDS* ^^ It will come off. Just wait till you put it back on
it is even worse
. And the thing that is pointed down it is FINE.

I already tried wiggling and pulling upwards.. but I guess Ill try harder. But I am doing it the right way right? Just unclip the two tabs and then try to pull the cover out? I think if I ever get it off I wont put it back on again.
