Hi,
This is probably really simple but how do I separate the the inlet manifold fuel lines on the explorer intake I bought. I figure there must be a trick to separate the joiners at the manifold.
Thanks

On the manifold? Just un do them down beside the powersteer pump, do just push those plastic things in and pull the lines out. Simple

Get some thin walled (2mm) plastic tubing about 15mm OD and 40mm long. Cut a slit lengthwise and put it over the pipe. Slide it all the way into the fitting and pull the 2 halves apart.
