Can anyone explain how to release the clip that attaches the leak off return pipe to the fuel pump? I've attached a photo showing the elbow circled in red. I was expecting this to unclip in the same manner that the fuel lines attach to the fuel filter with a clip that slides sideways, however, no amount of force seems to be working so I'm wondering if there's something different about this clip. Thanks.

AFAIK, it doesn't. It's part of the venturi assembly which is removable as a unit. Tomorrow I'll check on a spare I've got and let you know, unless someone beats me to it.

I'm looking to pull the leak off pipe out of this elbow. I appreciate that the elbow is well attached to the pump assembly. Thanks

Just push the white bit of plastic in and give the other end a good yank

Enlightenment! I'd read the original query wrong.
Yes, as above. Press the white tab in and pull

I've been trying to pull the white tab UP so this may explain my lack of success! Many thanks for your replies and hopefully the mystery is now solved.
