Spark Plug Changing

So i have been looking for a DIY on how to change a spark plug and found a tutorial on this site, that had no pictures I ran into one issue: trying to take the vacuum lines off the BPV. After i take off the clips there is about an inch of tube that is suction cupped onto a what i would assume a metal nub. I cant wiggle it off and was wondering if there is a tool or easier way to get the vacuum lines off without cutting/breaking them. Thanks in advance.

Check in the forums. I have found a link for my TLs full service manual. If not you usually get them fairly cheap. What year is your RDX?

I just removed the BPV from the intercooler when I did mine. 2 screws hold it on, one of them is a little tough to access but it wasn't the hardest part of the job by any means. Once the I/C is off the BPV doesn't get in the way of changing the plugs at all.
