I'd swop the whole bloody engine over if it's a runner
It's a bl00dy good runner even at 241k!
Killed by rust ?
No mate, far from it. Killed by me stuffing a qashqai up the ar5e
Soppy mare stopped at a roundabout for no good reason!
If Paul doesn’t take the whole car would you part with the front seats if they are heated leather?
I would part with them, they are heated and are the half leather 'Sport' seats (I think).
Here's a pic:
I also have a new, boxed, cover for the drivers seat back.
Nice one but full leather is preferred
No probs, hope you find some.
Are you also on the Jag Forum:
If not, well worth a visit. There's at least one other from here on it (isn't there Wightsparks! )
Two. Same name, same avatar.
Was on the X358, now X260 section.
Well so you are!
The world gets smaller by the day
I was thinking I might be up that way soon but the boss say's we're not so I'll hold off for the moment.
Time to pull the back end out of the fuel system out tomorrow. Oh Joy.
Then I might get to do the same to a Mondeo in a muddy field as oppose to a muddy track. Double Joy.
What am I missing ? These type of "quick" disconnects - push in the blue bits and slide off right ? Well not for the last hour - the fact that it is under the car with no access from the side it is on does not help. I have used a split pipe to slid inside the end as well, still not coming off. Ideas welcome as reluctant to destroy it!
Yeah press in & pull off
But sometimes if you push on & pull off they come off easier
if its the type im thinking of which has a what looks like a small coiled spring inside i have ended up using a chamfered piece of plastic wrapped round the end to assist the spring to move out of the way .
There may? be another bit to push in on the other side of the fitting, you need to press them both in to release the pipe . I have a couple of tools for the job.
Usually bunged up with dust. Insert a small screw driver into the holes either side of the blue clip and the clip will pop out a bit. It's a c-clip thing that just needs levering out
some of those the tab pulls out if you get a small screwdriver under it
It's not the C clip type - had those on and off the filters and feeds a bunch of times.
It is press in both sides and I made a tool to assist but still not coming off! I'll give it a blast with some brake cleaner in case of gunk.
Looking at the image below I don't understand why my split pipe slipped inside didn't work as it was hard up against the pipe ridge. Maybe it is just really stuck on the pipe. No room for wiggling, might just take it off the top (though that one has been mangled already)
You get proper pliers for taking these off, imaginatively named " fuel clip pliers". Less than a tenner, need to give the clips a good spray to try and clean them up first.
^ great, I was going to weld up something similar .... but for £6 delivered
Anyway having spent the daylight part of the day dealing with a crusty Mondeo estate I have pump, tank, sender, rail and pipes for not much money. No injectors yet - I am wondering if I can get the injectors cleaned - they were replaced and then blocked within a few miles from what I can see, so not much wear - probably get the local injector guys to do one and test it.
