    rolleyes

    do you mean the o ring between the lid and body of the filter housing

    or the small white rings where the fuel lines enter the housing


    If it the latter, then the blue tabs are held in place by black retainers that are part of the housing

    my white rings are free adn dont play any part

    sounds like someone hasn't put your lines back properly or

    worse still the retaining parts are missing therefore allowing the pipes to leak.


    if this is the case then under real pressure they will come off and leak fuel everywhere. try cable ties as a short term fix. but if it is broken then its a new fuel filter housing..


    sorry but Vx will supply at great cost

    i'll take a photo tomorrow and upload what it looks like on mine now

    i guess from what you're saying that the black tabs that hold the blue retainers in place might be broken

    this would allow the pipes to work loose under pressure.

    in the meantime use cable ties to secure the lines in place, drive like your granny is with you and then get a new housing

    mine was damaged by garage , denied it of course

    they,re about £100 from Vx but you get filter in it and that comes in at about 18£ normally

    take a pic and upload what yours looks like, maybe the lugs are missing on back where its harder to see

    i'll have a peep at it once you've done

    the new housing came with

    housing

    filter

    o ring for housing

    2 tiny white o ring and 2 blue retaining clips which fit over the fuel lines and help retain them

    as the fuel pressure increases , the blue retaining clips push back against the black lugs holding it all in situ

    it only takes one broken lug to lead to failure

    the other thing i'd check is that the fuel filter housing lid is secured properly......its a pig to tighten / untighten without good tools

    we put a post on this a few days ago about how to change fuel filter

    cheers

    Default cdti fuel filter

    Check the bowl for cracks where it fits in at the back.
    had to change 1 a couple pf weeks ago , had cracked where the lugs hold it in the crash cage.
    Not listed as trade club item but still got it for less than a 100.
