    Removing fuel pipes.. elp!

    one of my injector pipes sheered off yesterday and i need to try and get the bottom bit off and fit the new one.

    However i have a new EGR valve fitted and i really am noot keen on removing it, i have taken the screws out but cant pull it out under moderate prressure and im nopt breaking it, i need my car ASAP.

    Does anyone know if you vcan remove the fuel pipes, or at least allow me to have acces to the bottom two by any other means, and by what tools.

    I have removed the top hat, and discconected the pipes into the EGR valve, and taken out the oil filter, but i still can not get enough leverage to get the fuel pipes undone. Does anyone know if stubby spanners might work? or anythink else? i really want this done, the amount of shit going wrong atm is truely ****ing me off.


    Thanks for any help
