    I've found that our flat roof garage has two broken clips on the gutter causing water to leak down the side wall.

    Easy fix. However, our lovely considerate neighbours built their extension less than a foot away. Meaning that I'm unable to fix face on (as you normally would). So forced to fix from above.

    Does anyone have any tips for replacing these clips when space is limited, awkward and upside down?

    TIA

    Try to find the make of your guttering, first of all.....strong thumbs can spring the clips away from the gutter, and the make may be embossed somewhere.
    Warm weather helps a lot.....don't do this in the frost!
    Once you get the gutter free, it shouldn't be too bad to unscrew the brackets - if it's these that have snapped. They are fixed to the facia, and best replaced with stainless steel screws if you can get them.
