    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!!

    i have just snapped the fuel line changing the fuel filter, those clips are the spawn of satan! does anyone know where the pipe goes from the back of the filter?(i think it goes to the top of the fuel pump)
