    Hi All
    Quick update I have just removed Fuel Pump not to bad a job But had to buy a whole load of new spanners and allen keys as I had thrown away all my non metric tools as everthing is metric these days
    anyway looks like the gauze filter has disintergrated and maybe damaged pump I dont know if this is the problem but it needs fixing anyway
    What do you guys think could this be the culprit
    Thanks

    Its a 10 year old filter you left sitting in a pool of gasoline for 5 years.

    More than likely yes, I would clean the fuel system out and definitely the injectors and install new seals. If you can get in touch with the Lunaticfringe, he has a rebuild kit for the fuel pump.

    Have stripped down pump and filter and cleaned it out
    have been looking at replacing pump and regulator but not sure if pumps from a 2008- will be the same as my 2005 pump
    I was looking at the replacing the whole unit around 400 but the ones on ebay look slightly different to my one
    the seem to have a flex hose from the regulator are they interchangable
    thanks
