Hi

Went to swap out my fuel filter this morning but cannot get the clips undone on the hose. Any ideas

I'm going to replace them with jubilee clips. See pick attached. Don't want a garage doing a job I can do-if it wasn't for the clips

.........and as you will have noticed, the in and out pipes are different sizes. I think I was able to prise mine apart with a small screwdriver. I found the nut and bolt type clamps easier to use than small jubilee clips.

I reused mine i just nipped with pliers and flicked them open with a screwdriver, just use the pliers to refit them.

Yes indeed you may be able to re-use them again but I never have. Not keen on there design anyway so have always used a much better and easier to use clamp to ensure they don't blow off which they can sometimes do.

And how much diesel did you spill down onto the heat transfer box directly underneath it.......slowly rotting the seals and eventually causing a huge oil leak.......lol..... and yes,the same as Roy,clip them back together with face cutters (pincers)
