"Five Hose" CCV Replacement

Ahoy !
2002 S-Type; 4.0L, V8; Naturally Aspirated
So: More puzzling than I imagined, this CCV replacement. I mean: Yes, merely removing some intervening parts and disconnecting five hoses but, it looks like a process reliant on the right technique and the right type of flat band clamp pliers. On-line removal videos target the CCV itself but not all how that is done to get prior.
Only have a few hours today, in unseasonably warm +45F weather.
Ah, life’s a stumbling education !
Oye !
