2000 XC Fuel Pump issues

Post by mqwitkowski » Tue Jul 30, 2019 8:53 am

I cut an access hole in the car, as described. The left (looking from the front of the car) connector was rusted out. I don't have enough space to put a connector on the fuel line, and so it weeps slightly when it is running. Is there a way to get more fuel line out so that it can be properly fixed? I have gotten good at putting a connector and new line together with a hair dryer. Any help will help. Thanks in advance

Fuel pipes are mostly metal with only short sections of rubber in them at the ends. So don't hold out for a way to lengthen them. If you can find my V70R sub-frame repair post, there are pictures of the pipes in there which may help you see what goes where.

Being a 2000 it also runs a higher fuel pressure (nearer 60psi) so any repairs need to be solid.

Thank You scot850 for the advice. I finally stripped the metal , stretched the vinyl fuel line just enough to get over the flair, and heated the new vinyl and managed to get the new vinyl an inch onto the metal. No leaks so far. Thanks everyone for reading the post.
