Turbo -> Intercooler hose clips


Just been looking at my turbo to intercooler hose. Apart from it being covered in oil I noticed the clips seem really strange (does not seem to be a method to tighten or loosen them).

After a quick search of these forums it seems like a special set of hose clip pliers is required ?

My question is - can the clips be re-used or should I seek replacements ?

They are buggers, someone told me about getting a pair of hose pliers - but the ones i had fitted to mine were wierd Fiat/Alfa clips and not even the AA could remove them.

Destroy them with pliers and a screwdriver then use Jubilee Clips!
