    Hi, I can’t post links to images yet but basically the circle connector thing at the top of my high pressure fuel pump is cracked, ocastionnaly my epc light comes on and the car has no power until I take the engine cover off and push it back together. Does anyone know if you can just replace the connector? Or the top part of the pump? Or will the whole thing have to be replaced? Thanks

    for temp fix you can glue it
    happened on my car it is caused by the engine cover coming loose and hitting the connector causing it to crack
    and will need complete unit replacing as nobody sells the top part seperatly

    Yeah my engine cover mount is completely snapped off, I guessed that’s what’s caused it. Got new mounts on the way. Was thinking of glueing it but didn’t know how hot it gets and how the glue would react. Thanks.

    you can glue it with superglue and i did the same to mine with just superglue and drove it over 100 miles atleast and was running fine but changed the pump to be on the safe side

    Okay I’ll give that a try and start looking for a cheap second hand pump. Thanks for the help

    Just looking at fuel pumps, do you know if I have to get the exact same part number? Mine is 06f127025h but would 06f127025k or d fit for example?

    Mine is also cracked, don't think its causing any problems at the moment.
    Although it sometimes runs a little rough on idle but the down pipes blown also so that maybe contributing
    Ive got the CEL light up too but haven't had a chance to scan the code as im away at work

    Ive got a new pump coming, is it easy to swap over the auto tech internals?
