  2. fuel pressure regulator/filter -- too(?) tight fit --

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    OK, I understand that with 60 PSI / 4 bars pressure, the fuel pressure regulator has to be a tight fit inside its can, but this is ridiculous. Any suggestions for non-destructively getting a new FPR (or even just the old one) into the containment can? This is a 1996 AFC 12-valve 2.8 engine, but...
