Hi, new to this so please be patient with me.
Have a Y-reg KA and we have lost the clip off the fuel injector !! I know this sounds daft, but can the car run without the clip being on?
Just also having the full nightmare of getting the spark plugs out, one done....three to go!!

Any advice would be much appreciated.

The clip is there for a reason, although if your feeling confident you could try driving without it, worst case scenario is a bit of a fuel leak :P. If its the weird little square clip off the boxy thing (the one I'm thinking about, just before the fuel rail), you should be able to source on for pennies at a ford dealer as I think they are supposed to be replaced after they've been removed. Good luck with the spark plugs too! WD40 works miracles if they are a bit bound (mine were despite a service every 5,000 miles!).
