Fuel leak was created by Abudougal
Morning all,

Stopped the other day to see quite a lot of fuel pouring off the bottom of the car around the drivers side rear wheel but slightly forward of that area, its an 05 plate so I'm guessing rusty fuel line but I havent actually had time to go digging and check.

Anyone got any useful pointers before I get in there and start chopping bits out, the plan was to grab some rubber fuel hose and jubilee clips and replace what I can get to.

Any dos and don'ts much appreciated before I start crawling about under the car with a pipe cutter?

Rich

The send and return lines run along with the brakes on the inside edge of the chassis rail. Other than when they go behind the transfer box mounts they are relatively easy to get at. Just be careful with sources of ignition when playing with petrol, though if it's a line it may be empty by now.

Thanks, I've found the leaky bit and sods law it's the trickiest bit to get at, just above the filler neck. I'm going to have to undo a load of stuff to get in there. Some of the line has already been replaced with rubber and looks like I just need to replace a short bit of hose so fingers crossed it will be simple if I can get at it...

keep meaning to take pics but I never remember...

Fixed, woohoo, absolute sod to get to, it was above the tank. I started removing the tank then realised that was a bloody stupid idea and noticed I could actually get to it by peeling up the the plastic inner mudflap bit and then with the very ends of my fingers grab hold of the faulty bit of hose to undo and replace it.

Simply just an old stiff bit of hose leaking at the join.

I've tried to get a photo that shows it but not sure if it's useful or not.
