    I'm trying to fit my new tuning box to my car. I can't remove the fuel sensor clip. I've flicked the grey clip so it's out and tried pulling it out with pliers. I can move it from side to side, but can't remove it.

    Any help to remove this with be much appreciated

    Usually, springing the grey locking tag - as you have done - is just to allow the clip that holds the two parts together to be released.
    You then have to lever the clip on the main body of the plug so that it will allow the two parts to pull apart. Without doing this second step you will not be able to separate them.

    Thanks for that, Where abouts would I need to lever it? Under the grey clip that I pulled forward and then pull it towards me?

    If you have popped the grey clip forwards as you have , squeeze the grey clip downwards towards the wires with your thumb at the same time as pulling the whole main plug
