Disconnecting Fuel Tank Vent Pipe / Valve

Post by tonytiger73 »

Hello. I need to replace the fuel tank vent valve on a Saxo VTS but I’m not sure how it disconnects, and I don’t want to break anything in the process. (I know I probably need to drop the tank to get to one connector). I’ve attached images of the 2 connectors on the new part - can’t work out if I simply pull the old pipes out or if there’s a way to release them. The part reference is 1505.xx
I’ve tried a search but couldn’t find anything to say.

Has anybody done this or know how they release? Thanks in advance for any help.

The connectors look like click-fit connections, so there are 2 areas opposite of the connector that need to be pushed in to release. You probably won't see them on the new replacements as they are not connected yet - when they are, they should push out the lugs for later disconnection.
