Fuel pump/line issues. HELP

I have an 04 rx8, and where the line meets the fuel pump under the back seat is loose. I cant seem to find any part names or instructions on a fix. Im assuming i have to replace the green clip and maybe the blue thing but idk what their called. Someone please help! -Delta

Those clips are a pain to deal with. Since installing a S2 pump I cut off the line and connector and replaced it with 5/16 fuel line and worm drive clamps.

Its been holding fine for about 5-6 months now. I'm looking to replace all those annoying clips with push on AN fittings.

did you have it apart? The blue basket part is supposed to be further in...and then the green clip should seat properly.

therwise the rubber injector line fix from the metal fuel line to the pump and 2 clamps will work
