Plastic brake pipe clips
#1
When the weather finally improves & the garage dries out I'm hoping to clean up the rear underside of the car.  In a few places there's corrosion under/close to the plastic securing clips for the brake lines.  Can these be removed without destroying them and then reused?  Thanks.

They're the push pin to spread three leg type iirc as some f*ck nugget had broken them all on my rallye. I can't recall if you can see the back of the clips on the boot floor but if you can you can push the centre pin back through.

Yes, you can access the ones above the rear beam from the boot floor.

As said, there is a pin to push to get them out. They can be pretty stiff but I used a punch to push the pins.
