That is the air flow electrical sensor, there should just be a clip that you pry to remove it. If your having that much trouble you may just want to take it to an autozone and they will assist you for free. Also your local dealer should do this for your free of charge if you bring in a filter, as it takes only a few seconds. If you are still having issues please let me know and I will try and assist you further. Please take a moment to rate my solution accorindgly before you go on to someone else(though that shouldnt be necassary). Thank you,
Lee

    Computer codes


    p1402 - dm-tl air pump motor is shorted or disconnected.

    2000 model year accent is equipped with a new enhanced evaporative emission system. this new system is capable of measuring leaks as small as 0.020" diameter. the new system pressurizesthe evaporative emission system with a diagnostic module for tank leakage (dm-tl), while the previous model's system appliedengine vacuum through the purge valve to detect system leaks.

    service information
    vehicles that have the check engine light illuminated and have dtc p1401, p1402 and p1403 stored in the ecm should have their electrical systems diagnosed related to the appropriate dtc. these codes are not related in any way to an evaporative emission system leak. the conditions that set the diagnostic codes areas follows:
    p1401 - dm-tl air pump motor current draw is higher or lower than expected (normal = 17-36 ma).
    p1402 - dm-tl air pump motor is shorted or disconnected.
    p1403 - dm-tl changeover valve is shorted or disconnected

    perform the suggested repair
    1. inspect for water in the dmtl by removing the 90° air inlet elbow and looking into the air chamber. if water or corrosion is present, replace the dm-tl p/n 31440-25500; air filterp/n 31453-25500; and pipe assembly p/n 31454-25500if corrosion is in the pipe. see detailed instructions on page3 for air filter replacement.
    2. inspect for underbody coating sprayed into connector m52 at dm-tl. if underbody coating is present on the male or female connector, spray with electrical contact cleaner to remove the undercoating.

    air filter (dm-tl) replacement instructions
    1. disconnect the 90° elbow from the top of the dmtl and insert a clean rag into either the elbow or thedmtl inlet connector.
    2. disconnect the dmtl electrical connector.
      1. disconnect the 2 hoses at the front of the canister (caution: silicone hoses tear/puncture easily).
      2. remove canister assembly and dm-tl as a unit (3 mounting nuts).
      3. disconnect the 2 hoses from the metal transfer pipes.
      4. remove the canister, air filter, and metal tube assembly from the canister protector by removing the 3 mounting nuts.
      5. disconnect the hose at the air filter.
      6. remove the air filter mounting nut and remove the air filter.
      7. install a new air filter.
      8. reassemble in reverse order.
