I've bought a Lower intake from BAT and am wondering how to diconnect the fuel lines. Ford and Haynes quote some special tools (see attached), has anyone got a workaround?
I used a small hose clamp with the screw assembly cut off. So basically it was just a metal ring, and I slid it down into the flange and pulled. It ain't easy, but yeah...a little patience.Originally posted by: cmac
What I do if I don't have the tool with me is this. As you know, all that holds the two ends together is a circular spring. Take 2 small flathead screw drivers, put one parallel with the connector and then slide it into the side with the open slot to push against the spring, repeat this on the other side of the connector with the other screwdriver. Pull on the fuel line a little and thats it. It takes a little patience but once you do one its a piece of cake.
