diesel fuel filter hose leak
Yesterday - could smell fuel. had just filled up and thought i must have dripped some on shoes or something.
Last night - patch on drive under the front end. Started her up, reversed back to see if i could work out what was going on. Popped bonnet and fuel filter was hissing and ****ing diesel. Lifted hose from filter to high pressure pump and, behold, a hole worn through the hose from it rubbing up against the fuel filter housing. Lost a bit of fuel - nothing major but its the clean up of the driveway and the car that I have hated! does my nut in!
Botched tape repair at 10pm Saturday...until monday when I can do something about it.
Just thought I would post here in case anyone has a similar issue.
Apparently a recall jobby so will see what I can get done for FREE!!!
