    So I'm in the middle of swapping my stock fuel hard lines from tank to rail with AN lines on my 2g tsi.

    I'm stuck on removing the bracket by subframe and wondering if there's a way without dropping it???

    Some said they kept the lines in place but I already cut certain sections from them and I'd rather completely remove them.

    You would either have to cut/snap them or lower the subframe.

    You could also just cut the bracket. I removed the lines from my GSX and surprisingly didn't have trouble with the bracket bolts, but did have brackets break on me.

    So finally removed the feed and return completely without dropping the subframe :hellyeah: PITA but after enough yanking it came out. Got the bolt out too but the brackets broke off too LOL. I can't wait to finish the 8an and 6an lines and never worry about this again
