    Default Fuel lines

    Hi all

    on my Vectra direct Iíve managed to mangle both ends of the pipes that go into to fuel filter.
    ive ordered two more pipes from vauxhallsuperstore - are they an easy fit from the tank to the filter and also how do I release the y piece at the exit end - it has blue tabs on it but I darenít push them in with the special tool too hard or yank on it too hard.
    any thoughts would be massively appreciated

    or if you can get a set of long nose pliers and bend the tips.....this is what i done, had to heat the tips as they would just snap off

    Cheers guys - but it’s mainly about replacing the entire two pipes that come from the tank to the filter

    On my car, I had to get the garage to obtain new pipes from a Vauxhall dealer and fit them for me, after I did the same. It wasn't ​very expensive.
