    Thank you for your answer. I had put a fire under my son in law to look for the air assmy and remove, instead he pulled off MAF sensor hose and had axcess to the cable there and reattached the nipple end with a flat bladed screwdriver. About 10 minutes to do the job. How about that?

    Thanks. I think we found the answer by pulling off MAF sensor hose. Had access from there.
