My Car died today, the AA guy stated the petrol pump was kaput, how ever, upon net research and various opinions, It's pointing to the FFS, i bout the FOC a while back, but for the life of me i cannot find a how too, can some one give me a clue, cheers guys
cheers Mick, I am assuming that mine will be the later type, it has a lot of ppd stuff but also has it's fair shair of PD stuff, it's an 02 so a good chance, is this part actually immersed in the petrol
And make sure you put it back the right way round BBM. When the garage did mine (under warranty) they replaced it incorrectly - twice - resulting in petrol pouring all over the garage forecourt when I filled up. Twice!!
Oh and also make sure you don't catch and damage any of the O-rings as this can cause the pump not to be able to draw out of the off-side tank, again giving symptoms of FFS.
The tank port seals are marked 'This way down', which means that side goes in first. The seal should be carefully placed around the white flange on the port and the filter module replaced vertically onto it. There is a positioning lug to accommodate so ensure it's lined up correctly. When seated properly, the metal ring clamp will screw down easily by hand. If it needs standing on to compress the seal, it's all fitted wrong. Tap the ring seal to tighten or use a home made gizmo that you can torque up correctly. I forget the torque, but it's in Haynes.
i got a pump from the scrapyard, i fix his PC so got the part for nowt lol, all fitted and seems to be working fine, had to make up a fuel pipe for it but at least if it leaks then it goes straight into the tank, but jenny is all sorted
