Just replaced the factory OPDA with the Dorman. Thanks to all the good instructions on the forum, it took about an hour. Would have been 30 minutes if the stupid clip retainer bolt wasn't such a PITA to get to for removal of the old unit!
On that bolt there are 2 hints that help a lot in the removal/access to it. First, if you have a stock factory airbox remove it. It has like 3 screws and a couple hose clamps. Makes a lot more working room.
Second, once you get the 2 holes lined up and everything looks kosher to remove the unit take the pin or screwdriver out and loosen the bolt. Now you can turn the housing clockwise and gain a lot more access to the bolt to remove it. Ditto with install. Set the unit in so the holes are lined up and then remove the pin and turn it clockwise. Just do the finally tightening once you get it lined up again.
