I have a Payne 90 plus furnace. I believe the ignitor is bad

Customer Question

I have a Payne 90 plus furnace. I believe the ignitor is bad but it is hidden behind the gas manifold and air intake. It looks like it simply has clips hold it but even after pulling on it while releasing the clips it doesn't seem to budge. Is there a screw which I cannot see holding it in? If so that scree would be behind the pvc pipe for the air intake. How do I remove this ignitor?

I have answered my own question. There appears to be no screw.

Some of these ignitors were just held on by a clip instead of a screw. This one appears to be held on by a spring clip which you should be able to bend away from the ignitor and release the ignitor.

I verified that in my second post by getting my phone camera in there. I didn't see a way to cancel my question.
