OK, so I just changed my oil and filter, then spark plugs and moved on to the fuel filter. I haven't done it in the 5 years or so that I've owned the car so I figured it's due. I took a look at a couple of DIY threads on other forums and set to work. But have fallen down fairly quickly. These threads seem to indicate a pair of needle nose pliers should be used to squeeze the clamp and then pull off. WellI squeezed in various positions but felt no give. And with minimal movement during the process there is a now a drip coming from that connection. I've tried pushing it back on and taking it off completely but can't get it to move either way.
Does anyone have any advice for a silly ******* on a chilly Finnish Autumn night?
