Hello

its a big job as the pieps are the 1st things to go onto the car so supension, fuel tank and other underbody parts all need to come off to change this relatively cheap part

to be honest I'd consider replacing the fuel line with some flexible braided hose

such as the good ridge range

dash 4 (04) will be about the right size and being flexible the new line can be threaded through the underbody where it needs to go without removing most of the car
