Intercooler removal

Could anyone be so helpful in telling me the best way to remove my intercooler as i want to clean my idle control valve. Apart from the obvious bolts and clips i'm not so sure where to disconnect below the intercooler. No laughing though i'm new to all this.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Intercooler removal

Apart from the 2 bolts holding the cooler down, there is just a couple of jubilee type clips that hold the plastic pipes onto the turbo and throttle body. It does take some effort to come off and can be a pig to go back on again due to the plastic pipes from memory.

Took mine off when i fitted the front mount and only took 5 mins but i didnt have to put it back on again.
