Hello Bayliss welcome to the forum.
Am not familiar with the 2 litre petrol but am guessing your having problems removing the spring type hose clips?
There is a special tool available for this which makes the job easier or you could improvise with a pair of swan neck pliers.
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.
