147 JTDm fuel line "popping off"

Hi Guys, I'm puzzled by an occurance last night, after a 20 mile journey upon stopping discovered that one of the large fuel lines had popped off, the engine hadn't last any performance and I only realised due to the flood of diesel gushing out from under the engine. Not too sure which line it was, as I can't find a diagram on line, but it looked like a quick release connector that had come undone.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this ?

It will probably be the fuel return line if you're not noticing lost performance. Shouldn't really be under that much pressure.

Yep! fuel pipe from fuel filter to high pressure pump had a hole worn in it.

The replacement part was 40 from Alfa direct. It is an uprated part but, when I bought it and fitted it, the things was still leaking! updated in the sense it is a moulded pipe covered with a thicker sheath and the moulded pip inside is also moulded to the connectors!

As such, I looked at the old pipe - that one did not have any moulding to the fittings and they popped out of the fuel pipe - bought some pipe witha marginally smaller diameter than the existing (just enough to ensure a bit of difficulty in sticking it onto the fittings) and stuck some jubilee clips on for good measure - no more diesel **** ing out all over the show!
