    Anybody know where to find these clips? I searched the web, went to two auto part stores and even tried my luck at ford. (Stupid I know)
    Called UPR and you can only buy the whole fitting not just the clip. I’d guess it’s 3/4”.

    I knew it was only a matter of time before one of these broke. Today was that time.

    I think Dorman makes some of those clips. Usually used for fuel line and tranny lines.

    I’ll keep looking. The dorman ones I found were all tiny. Red for fuel and then the even smaller white ones.

    You can get them at Oreillys. I had to buy one when I snapped one swapping my LPFP out for the transfer pump line.

    Thanks, I didn’t check there.

    I noticed the ones UPR sells now are like the factory fittings where the clip doesn’t come out. That would be much more convenient. I need to stop being cheep and buy the drain line kit.

    The drain line would require you to mount the can in a different location. There just isn't enough room to get around the wheel well where it's located.

    Just one too many in and outs. I always struggled for some reason to get those to pop out. There must be a trick that I’m unaware of.

    Also, I was wondering about exactly that with the drain. I know the bottom of the can is pretty close to the fender well. Is that where the problem lies?

    I always push the clip down, then push the actual connector towards the CC fitting. It comes off super easy for me.

    Yeah but I take that fitting on and off too often to be chopping zip ties all the time.
