2.0e replace fuel pump mounting rubbers


Recommended Posts

I have been trying to remove what's left of the fuel pump mount bobbings can someone confirm that the body work side is a fixed nut  so it just screws in ? as I don't have anything to get hold of just a round flat base

Careful drilling, starting with smaller drills, then go larger. Use the other hole a a guide to final drill size...then remove remains with  an extractor or retap the thread...or drill right through and use a nut on the back...

Cheers guys as I don't have a welder will go for Pete's idea drill and extract will go on eBay and get a extractor set the other way I thought of was Dremel a slot and use a screwdriver bit both would be handy tools for the future only went to do this as my 2 year old braided hose started leaking on that 90deg turn from pump to pulse damper Finnished that job to find that another hose had started leaking lesson learned and I have ordered some gates barricade to replace the lot.

i bought a set of these last year from the same firm, but have yet to install them. let me know how you get on fitting yours so I have an idea on what to expect when I come do mine.

Hi execman the only advice I would give is don't do it like I did my shoulders still hurt as said above weld a nut on or drill and stud extract and soak in penetrating fluid over a couple of days.
