Dude, if you haven't replaced the Audi clips, then your best bet is to get some replacement hose clamps. I had a bitch of a time getting the std clips off, and IIRC they aren't made to be re-usable /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Other than that, it's a straight swap /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

so how can you clean/ service them? Is it just a strip down, polish insides reassemble and grease?

Sorry, that should have been:-

Does the AMD Viper have o rings? I thought they needed replacing in the forge 007. Isn't the AMD similiar in design to the forge 006? Therefore only need as good clean down, reassemble & grease?

the Viper has the 2 O-rings spaced out more than the 006 to prevent seizing.
