Title: High pressure diesel pump
Post by: Mark Vardy on November 24, 2017, 09:51:00 PM
Hi Iím wondering if itís possible to replace the fuel inlet contentions as in the part the fuel pipe slides over and the clap grips,Iv got 2 but Iv noticed one has a cracked one,itís not the one that spins itís one of the fixed ones.

Which ones do you mean the ones from bulkhead to filter or ones between filter and tandem pump/head?
If itís after filter normal 8mm fuel pipe and jubilee clips will replace them if itís the ones to the filter then thatís a bit more tricky as the 8mm rubber part is crimped to the pipes from bulkhead so would need to be replaced with genuine parts I would think?

Iím not sure if that will work,if it has itís the part that the yellow caps are on,one has a crack in the metal part that the pipe goes over,itís that Iím wondering if I could replace with another one
It the unit thatís attached to the side of the bulk head,itís the unit itself one of the 3 metal outlet tubes has a big split down it,Iv tried to post a pic but I cant change it to the right file to be able to post

Oh right itís actually the steel pipe on tandem pump thatís cracked then,in that case you need to replace the pump. Fairly cheap on the fleabay,shame you didnít post this few days ago as I had a spare reconditioned LUK pump that I let go with the Audi A3 I sold.
