Hello

I have a slight fuel leak coming from the quick release fuel pipe connector that joins to the fuel rail, i have tried to find an online parts fiche to obtain the correct part number for the o-ring. Can anyone please point in the right direction for an online past fiche, or the part number and a supplier.

Thanks in advance

Hello Al

Can you take a photo of the part and its associated pipe, in context of the engine and attach it to the forum, here?

Hi

You can't get just the o-ring or just the connector. The whole fuel pipe is supplied.

It looks like the complete pipe is 1574.CF Citroen part number for that engine, but it would be best to confirm that with Citroen parts department.

There are 2 orings in the connector. Good luck getting them out!!
I replaced two in my C2 on the fuel pump when I had a leak but it turned out to be the fuel pump not the fuel connector.
You can get entire kits from ebay.
They are green nitrile orings. Nitrile is resistant to a lot of chemicals.
I live in Australia so I cant tell you what places to try. I have a local bearing shop that I can get orings and there are big auto shops that would probably carry them.
Remove the connector and measure the spigot shaft on the fuel rail. Buy a small assortment of sizes of orings close to (but slightly smaller than) that inner diameter. Or just buy a kit from ebay.
