Renix fuel rail clips

I have a 1988 Cherokee Limited with the 4.0L and it needs new clips where the fuel line and return lines attach to the fuel rail. Can someone double check my parts and confirm that the two parts in the link are what I need? I did search and I think these are correct based upon what I found in the searches.

This is what happens when you don't drive your XJ for a year and just let it sit.

Just see an empty cart.
Looks like these are the correct ones, but wow $20 each!

You don't need to disconnect the fuel lines to do the injectors.

You know where the cluster block of plastic vac lines is at the front of the intake manifold?

Take the nut off underneath it and you can wiggle the rail around no problem.

Napa has them. Not cheap either.

Here's amazon https://www.amazon.com/Crown-Automot.../dp/B00B8X56RA

Re: Renix fuel rail clips

That's strange. When I click on the link I provided it show the two fuel line connectors.

Crown 83502745 5/16"


Crown 83504447 3/8"


They are $8.99 each and $4.99 to ship. I did take the old ones off last night and these sure look like the correct parts. I also have a friend at O'Reilly's that converted the Crown numbers to a Dorman 800-750 and BWD 27481, but they are a lot more expensive. I'm going to look at them at lunch time today.

Re: Renix fuel rail clips

Well, I compared the original clips on my '88 (which it turns out are the same although one is molded in white and the other black) and they match up to the BWD 27481.

Once I get them installed I will report back on if they worked out and seal properly.

Re: Renix fuel rail clips

In my experience those lines and the fuel lines are a total bitch to reinstall, and having arthritis does not help. In fact I suspect the new clip/orings... parts are not a perfect OEM match anymore. You have press super hard to get the new ones to catch and grab and hold. If they do not click and snap on, they will blow out later!!!! Cleaning the female tube with alcohol and cotton swab cue-tip and then lubing both sides with motor oil helps.

Re: Renix fuel rail clips

The 27481 BWD fuel line clips worked like a charm. The were very tight to press in requiring a tiny amount of pressure on each clip to allow them to snap in place. I used as bit a Vaseline to help lubricate the o-rings to prevent damaging them. I fires up the XJ and it ran great with no leaks. Mission accomplished.
