    How do you remove the bloody clips form the fuel filter. Car is 1.8 turbo sport on a 51 plate.

    Remove the fuel filter lines, just press the releases in, I think they are white square buttons then pull then off, some fuel will drip so place your thumb over the side from the tank side. It can be a slightly messy job but should only take a couple of minutes. Also the fixings can be a little stiff if its not been changed for a while.

    Carefully :)

    To get an idea of what you have to do look at the ones under the bonnet my the brake fluid reservoir... there are 3 connections there that use the same ends...

    You have to push the 'latch' in and gently pull... if you start by pushing the whole fitting so its more 'on' then push the 'latch' in using a thumbnail or a pointy thing then gently pull (while holding the 'latch' in)
