    Hi guys wasn't sure whether this falls in any other categories. Anyone know how to remove this type of clip?

    By cutting it. Looks like it is crimped on. To replace you’d need the specific clip and crimping tool…

    Cut it off then replace it with a small jubilee clip.

    Thank you for the reply - I've never seen a clip like this - do you know what they are called?

    I was thinking the same re using a jubilee clip - it's a huge pain to try and take off

    They are called 'ear clips' come with single or double ears which need to be crimped, search on Ebay.

    I can only see metal ones not the plastic one like the picture I don't think you can lose it to remove the pipe
