    Default fuel filter help petrol PLEASE

    help please, i just tired to get the filter off my 52 plate 1.8 16v and got one side off pretty easy but other side put up a real fight, i pulled at it for ages, i do have the proper spring clip pliers but still no good.

    Anyway like an idiot i ended up snapping the plastic clip that goes over spring clip. So ive just put a piece of hose from the old hose to filter and now there no fuel coming through and thought that would work simple. It is clear through now but nothing, what have i done ....
