Well Happy Fuel leak solved

I found that the fuel pump top was leaking gas down the tank and on the ground simple fix- remove back seats both and expose the fuel pump directly behind the pass through arm rest.the top has a small plastic top that seems to have a pin hole and leaks fuel. I just bought "steel like putty" molded it in to the area and let set.that seems to have worked.

I had the same problem. Seemed to be a crack around the plastic tube inside the plastic tower like shape on top of the pump cover. I bought a second hand assembly and replaced the whole unit. How is your repair holding up? Sounds like a simple fix.
