Well I've spent 4 hours under the corsa fitting a new petrol filter to the car. The old one had rusted so baldy it had actually started leaking petrol. Needless to say when my missus arrived home last night it really smelled bad!!!
So first thing this morning (8am) I went to Vauxhall got a new filter. Started removing the old one. But there is no way on gods earth it was moving. Ended up breaking a clip on the petrol tank side! So now I need a whole new peice of tubing and connector from the tank to the petrol filter £17.50 can't have it till tomorrow but I've now got to drop the tank .
Pushed on the remains of the clip to the filter. Slotted in quite well and was on quite nicely. (I couldn't budge it off). Started the car. LIFE. It ran... for 30 seconds then abruptly cut out as the pressure on the fuel line had popped the feed off the filter and was now spraying petrol all over my drive .
So now I smell like petrol, I'm cold through to the bone, I feel high from the bloody fumes and I'm hugely late for work. I know I've got a mission ahead of me with the tank 75% full.
So word of warning this filter was 7 years old and well overdue a replacement!!!
