    Default cdti fuel leak

    Has anyone had diesel leaking out of this pipe? is there a quick fix or shall I go to the stealers and give them the £65.00 for a new one.

    This pipe on mine has ruptured! got the new pipe, how do you remove either end without damage? or do you need to replace other parts connectors?

    thanks Ronnie

    I got some really thick fuel hose from a local factors, and used jubillee clips on either end, has been on for 6 months and 10k miles, and not had an ounce of bother, the reason for this was the nearest 2 dealers told me the pipe was on back order with no estimated supply date.
    The worst part of the job was cutting the old pipe off, having to be very careful with the hacksaw so as not to damage the ends

    Cheers for that, when mine broke down the AA guy cut the rubber part out and put a bit of fuel hose on with jubilee clips, held out for a few weeks but has started leaking now, the new pipe was £67, just want to be sure I know what to do before I takle it?
