Good morning everyone,
Hoping someone can help me on this. Just spent some time dropping the fuel tank from the wife's Puma. Now, my question is how the hell do you get the two fuel lines off the top of the pump assembly? Managed to work around the white outlet line by disconnecting from the fuel filter, but the red return line was impossible; I ended up having to snip it close to the L-peice.

Now, I know the lines looked like they had a similar press-collar like the ones on the fuel filter, but they are not the same. So what's the trick?

Cheers!

It looks like this (although I didn't butcher the wiring on ours like this one!). You can see it looks like you should just be able to press the sides of the collars and pull the top off the pump housing, But alas no. And brute force doesn't work either.

So, anyone able to help solve this one?
