fuel pump leaking
« on: December 03, 2018, 02:47:56 PM »
Hi guys.

I have tried to look in the manuals about this part of the fuel pump, but unfortunately I am not able to identify it.
The point is, there is a small leak coming from that "hole" and I dont know what it could be, does anybody had the same problem or knows how to fix it?



Cheers


Tomás

Isn't that the bleed hole for trapped air?

I have no idea what hole is that, as said, I wasn't able to find an explanation on Haynes

Looks like it maybe the rocker pivot pin? If it is perhaps the pivot pin hole is worn due to wear. You will need to take the pump off to see what is happening

I agree with Pete the easiest option is to fit a new pump, they are only around £15.
