New fuel filler seal doesn't fit?

Post by Ads1987 »

Hi guys,

Have an early 1.9 dg that's leaking fuel at the filler neck tank seal, fitted new Brickwerks seal but still leaked a lot. Rechecked filler neck and noticed it's a bit rusty and has actually polished itself so is thinner at the seal area.

Ordered new later style plastic neck with the adapter seal from Brickwerks but it still seems loose. You can hopefully see the video where it actually moves up and down on the tank. Can't see how to get this water tight?

Any ideas would be great!

Cheers,

Adam.

Has anyone tried fitting the newer late plastic filler to an early tank?

I'd probably just swap the tank for the later type. The fuel system is something you shouldn't half a***. And you've got the later plastic filler.

I got the same kit.

Rubbish had to revert to the old knackered one I chiseled off but it actually fits and seals against the body compared to the one I got :(

Lol thanks, at least I know I'm not the only one!

I might try parts heritage as I saw the list the seal as 70mm instead of 68mm so maybe that will be a better fit, probably just a waste of another £14 but might work!

Either that or I'll have to try and wrap something around the neck where it's gotten thinner :s
