    Decided to change my fuel filter today, not a hard job but run across a few problems along the way.

    For starters the jubilee clip holding the filter up, the screw was so rusted I had to cut the filter off.

    next when removing the pipes fitting going to the petrol tank was simple and come off easy,
    but the fitting which goes off towards the engine was a pain in the arse,
    the fuel filter broke inside the fitting and I can't get it out so ended up cutting the fitting off.
    dpes anyone know how I can do a quick fix, or buy a new fitting.

    it is the one which is a 90 degree fitting with a clip inside, many thanks

    Fittings aren't available separately that I am aware of... the way they fit to the plastic pipes is not really a diy job...
