Sinotar, what tool did you use to release the fuel line clamps in the front of the tank? Is ther some sort of trick to get these off?:duh:
Dbrow--I think you are talking about those "quick clips"...my husband was using a screwdriver to get them off. They should be in a U shape....push down on the bottom of the U with the screwdriver....he said that the ends would then spread apart and the lines could come apart. He was doing it with his fingers, but that got tiring and started to hurt.
^ push here
Hope this helps
So if I understand this, the clips must be removed completely, correct? I bought a tool that slips into the fitting and spreads the clips but I cannot pull the lines apart. If it needs to be removed completely that would answer my question. By the way great photography on your article.
Clips do not need to be removed. The bottom of the clip only needs to be pushed in to release the lines. The clips should not be removed.Yes, I believe the clips need to be removed completely. You should be able to hook it and pull it easily from the other side when you are able to spread the clip legs.
Please help me. in your picutres i noticed a piece that broke on my gas tank. Can you please tell me what this part is called so i can order another one and finally feel safe driving my TB again?
