    For the pipe to the charcoal canister?

    I use a pair of pipe grips to pinch it and pull off the hose.

    Ahh, just thought, you have the later engine. If so, you can purchase a special tool made by "Laser" from halfords for these clips. Use it one way round to remove and then reverse the jaws to re-attach.
