dear all, I've scrolled several pages looking before posting, and unable to find an similar thread, apologies if I am asking in the incorrect area. Bought 'new' used 307 sw estate wagon 2005 yesterday. Ironically after husband brought it home, my scrutiny uncovered a few glitches, but still reassured of it being solid, he took it to work last night, to only have it break down on his way home this morning. He was able to discern quickly that a fuel line had become detached. No clip! It's the plastic quick connector clip that attaches the fuel hose to the injector rail. He pushe said hose on and made it home. That said, still need to fix asap. Overwhelmed (both of us searching) with multiple ebay, auto parts, etc sites for this part, and my query is this. Could anyone please advise as to the Size I need to find/purchase? In spite of my being usually the mechanical gal, I will freely admit my experience tends towards older American cars with which I grew up with (formerly US now UK citizen), as well as working in auto related positions for decades from auto body, collision repair, finishing, auto parts manufacturing etc, but am less savvy with newer/foreign vehicles. The more electric/computor parts, the more ignorant I am. Could anyone please advise? I suspect I may revert from lurking as I did much of a few years ago, to becoming more involved and engaging on this forum that I so enjoyed reading until unfortunate medical issues prevented me from doing so. That said, I will genuinely try to limit my rambling, an unfortunate quirk from prior injury. I do hope that apologies in advance may also assist in my becoming more familiar with the forum. So, after writing thrice, I should post this request now, so as to try and find this part as quickly as possible! I hope everyone is enjoying their day, warm regards, ladybudd

How far is your nearest Peugeot dealer?. Or maybe look up specialist Peugeot breakers online.
I do it the other way round, I run American cars as a hobby.

dear Roger, thank you, I suspect if he wants that clip he will have to do just as you suggested. I actually started looking up dealers info in the manual until I realised it was over ten years old! Ha! That said, I genuinely DO miss working on old American cars, putting an 400 small block from an wrecked corvette into my cherished camaro, using an giant tree branch vs a cherry picker in the country, was one of my fave highlights working on it!:) I also miss the "you wrench it" scrap yards where we could spend an entire Saturday happily stripping what ever bits we needed for which ever car we were working on at the moment! Give me an old fashioned fully mechanical, non electrics vehicle anyway. If ever back to working, an older discovery plain Jane is my ultimate coveted vehicle to putter, maintain and/or restore someday:)I may have sold all my tools in the US, but have started a fair decent small collection to at least do whatever basic maintenence bits I can here; even currently working on my bosch washing machine this afternoon,LOL! Thanks again for the advice, and if you ever need a hand/idea about one of your American cars, just give me a buzz...or a Roar! ...Nothing like the sound of an Holly 650 4 barrel w/ an edelbrock intake, wide open, to wake this gal up!

Last 8 digit of the VIN will allow us to get the right part number of the clip and the from there Google might help!

Thank you both! The engine is petro, and will have to wait on vin as hubby took car to work(after double checking snugness). Seems every "parts" dealer don't even show the clip available (well at least the several I've checked so far online) and it's shown on utube being fitted, so we know it's a quick clip with a button, and still not keen on buying a Haines at 23 pounds on the guess it may have a part number. But will def supply vin when he finishes work in wee hours. Tempted to have a mate have a go at 3d printing one LOL! But not enough detail available and not quite convinced it would work(spring in a quick clip usually)...that said, if dealer on phone tomorrow can't supply, will consider grabbing tool bag to find an scrapyard if anything relatively near with pugs! THAT would be an adventure I would relish;) But not sure himself would. TY again and will return with vin in morn, have a lovely eve peeps! Xxx

Hello all, been a very busy day, thank you so much for your patience and advice. The VIN number is 84108043 and it is an 1587cc /1.6 and it's an 307 sw se (estate) 2005
Still no joy searching online, as unable to use phone today, but even a part number from a catalog (which so far also eludes me) would be an huge help. So far, so safe as hubby doesn't need to go far for work at night. One would have thought recent MOT could have picked up, or even prior owner, but assume it may have been quite snug on for sometime until just recently. Here's hoping it remains so until clip is found. Thank you again for all of your comments, what an lovely group of people on this forum:) xxx

A picture says a thousand words!
You can get these type of clips on the ebay. They can be used to replace/repair fuel lines both plastic and steel pipework. measure the outer diameter of the pipe and search on ebay for fuel pipe coupling quick release to see if you can find one that will do the job.

Thank you all for you help, it has been invaluable and believe we have sorted problem. That said, I will probably return with occasional glitches as they arise, but to be expected from an 10+ yr old car (passed MOT in July) and we also ordered Haines manual as well. I hope you are annoying you week, thank you again for all of your advice! Warmest regards, ladybudd.
