Can't get Air Intake Temprature Sensor out!

Figured I would post in here first. I'm installing a cold air intake in my 2013 Wrangler Unlmited and the Air Intake Temperature Sensor is being a ***** to get out. I don't want to force it and break it, wasn't sure if theres a trick to this that anybody knows about?

I did it by inserting a small flat-blade screwdriver next to the sensor from the outside, and kind of prying it out. I saw this tip on Project-JK.com. The sensor seems fragile so be careful!

Figured it out. On the 2013 Unlimited's it's a 1/4 counter clockwise turn. You have to be SUPER careful with it or it will snap. I just used pliers and slowly rotated it.
