    I desperately need some help. I have Ecotec exclusive 838 with a faulty pressure sensor. I got replacement part and tried to install but the old pressure sensor is somehow locked in place. I have removed the metal clip which holds it but I am not sure if there is another clip or some sort of knack to removing it.

    Picture shows the pressure sensor in place from front and side (with the clip removed).

    Is there a second clip somewhere?

    Thanks in advance for any help offered.

    You shouldn't be removing the casing of your boiler - it forms the safety room seal and work within that area should only be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered engineer who can carry out the Regulation 26.9 checks on completion.

    @muggles - We are both grownups, so its up to each of us to make our choices. This in my own home that I was happy to attempt myself. I didn't break any laws or take any payment.
