Problem – can’t figure out how to get the fuel lines and the wire connectors off the tank. The fuel lines (pretty rusty) seem to have some kind of push/slide lock, but the outer part of the fitting on the lines doesn’t seem to be separate or movable. The rubber hoses are on pretty tight.

Bonus! More on The Volvo XC70

At its introduction, the second generation V70 XC received a major upgrade. It featured better ground clearance of 8.2 in (210 mm) thanks to a raised suspension, different bodywork with unpainted bumpers and fender extensions, and AWD as standard. An interior grab handle for the front passenger was installed only on this model. Early V70 XC featured special rear view mirrors, a feature that was discontinued after 2003.

Engine and gearbox choices were limited. Only the 2.5L low pressure turbo, or the D5 diesel engine with either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission were available. No diesel version was offered for the North American market.

For 2003 the model was renamed the XC70, in keeping with Volvo’s newly introduced XC90

I’ve taken the pump out, but when I pulled the fuel lines off the pump, the set of clips that hold the lines to the pump were bent and/or broken. Where do I get new clips so I can attach the lines back to the new pump?
