Fellas, in all seriousness, has anyone rebuilt this line?


It appears that it's a hard nylon line (wrapped in regular 3/8 rubber fuel line) with that useless pressure fitting on the end of the line and a threaded barb on the other end...

The only part I can't for the life of me identify is the threaded barb fitting. I'm almost positive it won't be available at Home Depot. (It can probably be reused, no?) Generic fuel lines, both hard nylon and rubber, are available on Amazon, I think you need around 6-9 feet of each. That's about $50 in lines.

$14 - 10" of 5/16" hard nylon fuel-grade tubing: https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-800-074-F ... +fuel+line

$22 - 25' of 3/8" rubber fuel-grade tubing: https://www.amazon.com/Pro-1-Inside-Dia ... +fuel+line

$10 - 5/16" quick connect fitting: https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-800-080-Q ... ZVZ0GF4489

(This should be enough for two line rebuilds, no?)

Update: Finally repaired the leaky fuel line in my '98 V70 (base) with a P2 filter, quick connect clip, 5/16" hard plastic fuel line, two 8mm clamps, and a heat gun. So far, so good. No leaks!

Folks, I have recovered a complete set of fuel line fittings from my parts 1998, so if anyone needs these, they will be available as soon as I replace my fuel filter on my 1999 without breaking anything


Bruno..next time Iโ€™m down letโ€™s get rid of those hose clamps for double stainless oetikers which will last longer than those silver cheese ones

ImageI also got the same issue a few days ago. I posted my issue and got sent here right away as the best option for solutions. I didn't want to have to go with a new filter so after a ton of research by myself and my father in law we came up with this solution

Doman has LOTS of car repair solutions. They try to make improved parts, not just parts that fit. I try to check their web site https://www.dormanproducts.com/ when I have a problem to requires an expensive OEM replacement. They do not seem to offer direct selling from their web site, but if you find a part you need, you can ask your local helpful auto supply to order for you. Also, Summit Racing https://www.summitracing.com/
has many of their parts available.
