    Question Syphoning diesel..

    Ok before i get shot down about it, had a car shunt this week which i very much doubt the car will be repairable! Front and rear damage and also crease in rear offside panel the boots been moved about 2 inches more one side!

    That said i have over 3/4's of a tank of diesel and i refuse to pay or more fuel to put in the courtesy shed i've got (pug 5008!)

    Now i've tried syphoning the tank the old fashioned way and get a trickle out, so then asked a mate how i'd do it!

    Told me take the plate off in the boot, remove the inlet n outlet pipes and unclip connector, then pop off the white ridged surround! Now this is where i've got stuck! I've tried screwdriver and hammer on edges and the fcuke doesnt shift!? Anyone any experience on how to budge this badboy!??



    The pipes are taken off but reinstalled as everytime i hit the white ring fuel spews out!

    Not really enough room to get hands on it and i'm lacking the power and movement in arms from the crash so kinda limited..

    Yeah thats my black one!

    i usually just tap those round with a screwdriver.

    Nothing worst than drinking diesel though, petrol tastes nasty but diesel is really nasty and repeats for what feels like days!

    I've had a restricted fuel flow problem with mine, car can go into limp mode when overtaking or at high speed,which following a vag-com fault-code ;
    (117428/P1020/004128-FUEL PRESS;REGULATION:CONTROL RANGE EXCEEDED) and a little investigation on another site turns out 2.0 petrol and FSI , 2002-2004, there is a factory fault with the mesh in the fuel pump needing replacing with a up-dated part with bigger mesh holes,,,

    Is this the same part AS ALL-TORQUE I need to remove to gain access???

    Hope this info helps anyone else with similar prob !

    ALL-TORQUE,,, Sorry to learn of your accident,,, pleased you and your kids are OK...
