    Default Removing fuel filter pipes

    I need to change my fuel filter on my 1.9 cdti and ive read the how 2 on what needs done but im after a bit more detail on how to release the 2 fuel lines. It says just to use a flat headed screw driver on the blue connectors but i need to know exactly where im putting the screwdriver and in which direction do i apply pressure?
    I dont want to steam in there and break them without knowing exactly how to release them.

    Cheers

    No don't put too much pressure on them - they damage easily - if you put a small screwdriver on each little blue tabs and gently push them inwards pulling the pipe at the same time the clips will release and the pipe will come out
