    Fuel leak

    Ok, i have noticed fuel dripping from the filter area (underneath the car, rear drivers side)
    question is, how do the clips come off the filter? Ive got a new filter so do i need to get some emergency jubilees? or do they come awayfrom the filter easy.....
    Thanks

    Cheers Daz, yes i changed it today, very fiddly job, It is 1 tab you press then they pull off, It was leaking on the filter itself FTW, and my slightly lumpy idle has gone....what a bonus!!
