Fuel filter connection
« on: 24 June 2018, 19:18:06 »

Hello all. Fitted a new fuel filter today,and although it seemed to connect properly, discovered it was leaking badly at front end. Connection on old filter was difficult to release, and after removal it appeared corroded and have possibly damaged the connection...looks like it was butchered by a previous owner or mechanic.
   I now can't fit new filter and car will have to be off the road in meantime (use it for work). Will I have to replace the whole fuel line or can I just replace the connector....if they are indeed available...it's like an elbow joint and looks quite difficult to remove from main line, tight fit and crimped...obviously made that way. Filter clicks in OK back end. How do I post a pic 😉

A four inch length of BS7480 fuel hose plus two stainless jubilee clips each end.

Cut the old fitting off the pipe and insert halfway into the fuel hose, then pop the other end straight on the filter.

Done :y
