Default fuel line question...

So I changed the plugs & wires on my 2006 turbo convertible and snapped off the fuel line where it clips into the main line at the fire wall. I bought one of those kits that you cut & splice in to the existing line, but I'm not comfortable with the patch job.
Two questions...
1. where can I find the replacement gas line that clips from the main line to the engine (searched and found nothing)
2. How does it detach/attach to the engine (looks like there is a white plastic tab) I know with the main line connect, you have to squeeze the plastic tab to release...
Thanks, learn a lot on this site!

Ours broke, too.
I used a 2d gen Neon line, cut it off, heated it and pushed it on the barb.

Both ends come off the same way.

Neon's little accumulators seem to all weep.

I agree replacements seem flunky, I'd buy new regardless of cost- Just isn't
worth having a PT weenie roast on side of freeway

I did the same thing buy instead of snapping it by the firewall I broke mine where it goes to the fuel rail. Is there a part number that I can use to just order that whole line from a dealer or what is the best way to fix that?

The dealer can look it up for you. You don't need the part number before you go and as Uptown Sport already said, it's best to get a new line rather than piecemeal something together.

This is what happens when a fuel rail leaks onto a PT engine.

well I wanted a part number so I could order it online. I found a dealership that has an online parts site that is half the price of my local dealer.

OK, since yours is a 2001 (same as mine) I have the Chrysler PT Cruiser Parts Manual.

The line (I think your talking about is called: Tube, fuel supply (fuel line to rail front). No. 5278 260AA

Folks, our ma Chrome has collected a very helpful library, it's at the top of this forum:

PT CRUISER TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS LIBRARY

Download your specific year, look through for your engine / model and run that part number online.

And I think it's really, really important to look closely at what Crewzin posted.
Underhood fuel leaks are the worst thing that can happen to your drive.
