I purchased some metal replacement fittings for the plastic quick disconnects for the gas tank of a 97 916. When trying to take the plastic fittings off the broke leaving the plastics threads inside. Any ideas on how to get these out?

Literally I just did this operation 5 mins ago and the same thing happened to me. I got a large "easy-out" and an impact tool and the left over plastic sleeve came right out of the hole. The right tools make the job easy. Good luck. Get an easy out.

Now I need to find out how to get the male couplers on? The stock ones look like they are integrated into the hose. Any ideas?

I ordered the male and female sides. Don't your males fit your hoses? It may be to late for easy outs. I already tried drilling through the plastic to thin it out.

Are you going to use any type of selant on the threads?

Try using a screw that fits inside the hole so it "grips" the inner wals of the plastic tube. Push the release metal part and pull.. Worked for me..
