300tdi Spill Rail

Recommended Posts

Getting fed up with replacing the spill rail rubber links.

Seems to be every few years they fail and leak fuel all over the engine etc.

What solutions have you found that works, thinking of using a silicon based flexible tubing.

What are your thoughts?

I just carry a roll of the tube behind the seats (with a fan belt ) and change  all three pipes if one leaks , costs almost nothing and could be done every time you  change the fuel filter , (I bought a genuine one recently and that still had the braided rubber pipes)

I replaced mine with Saintgobain Tygon hose three years ago and still perfect. Everything else I’ve tried over the past twenty plus years has failed, be it various types of rubber, braided rubber (usually the worst) or plastic / nylon
