Fuel Clips

Post by f1cumm »

Just wondering if anyone new where I could buy the red and blue plastic clips that are used to retain the fuel lines into the fuel filter.
I have a 2012 PX 1 ranger and they have become brittle. The Ford dealer wants me to buy the complete fuel lines.
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

The last time I got fuel connections was through Supercheap auto when I added a secondary fuel filter but not sure they will fit the ranger oem fuel lines, my opinion you are most likely break the oem fuel lines trying to change them over.

Same happened to me, I also checked at For but I don't want to buy the whole fuel line so I didn't look any further, I am still driving with the broken clip and it's no leaking but I will have to make an effort to find a replacement one day, please let me know when you find one, thanks!

Hi All,

I actually lost one of the red clips and am still trying to find it but wanted to check for options. I also don't want to buy a whole new fuel line at $150 for such a cheap plastic part but if I cannot find the clip, is it safe to clamp the hose on or will it still leak?

Just buy some high pressure fuel hose and some hose clamps, do away with the factory hard line and use the new flexible hose, you can buy the connectors on eBay if you want to be fussy and have the quick disconnect set up just make sure you use high pressure fuel hose.
