Well the first step of servicing this morning was to remove the fuel tank, on which I promptly snapped the fitting on the main fuel hose, trouble is a piece broke off in the port and I've really chewed it up now. I'd rather not undo the base in case of future leaks but looks like I've no option. I'm thinking of making up something more durable and easy to connect /disconnect. Any ideas welcome

You have got a real problem now,
Taking the pump from the tank is not a problem, undo the fixings and the pump comes out with an O ring seal around the perimeter.
Unless you can get the bit of plastic out of the pump , you are buggered. New pump required , not cheap !!
if you can get it out you can get a new 90 degree angle to push in to the tank , one off one time fix , then create a new coupling under the tank.

I'm wondering if a larger barbed fitting would hold
No , it wont. Scaled reptile Snake Plant Pipe Tail
This is the original fitting you had , with the banjo fitting to the fuel rail. If you fit this , you wont be able to get it back out now the clips are broken.

This is the end that fits in the tank.

you need this type of fitting with a coupler connecting to the fuel pipe feed to the fuel rail, you can then unplug the fuel pipe here, leaving the smooth push fit sleeve in the tank..

Do you think the push fit sleeve will be OK without the red plastic part or clips, I'm worried about it blowing out. Also are they available separately without the hose, as I can then modify my hose. Thanks for your help Freeatlast
