    Audi A3 2004/2005 2.0 FSI Sport.

    Had a fuel leak a while ago so i took it back to the garage that i bought it from and they said that they sorted it and seemed ok but now the smell of petrol has come back so i want to replace the fuel rails and fittings.

    I have attached a photo of the rails, something doesn't seem right, there's paste all over the rails and there's a nut on both the these rails that go into the housing, i want to know are these nuts needed as i just thought the bolts should go straight through the pipe into the housing? (seems to me that they've done a bodge job)

    I'm buying the pipes and bolts from audi but when they sent me the order it came with no nuts? do i need them or not?

    Thanks

    Well for me the fix is a very cowboy one unless you asked for as cheap as possible, looks like banjo fitment & they've basically sealed it with some ****.

    You should replace all the fixings, so including lines, bolts etc, but it may just be the fixings that need replacing as I can only surmise that's what is wrapped up from that pic.

    Yeah i've ordered all the parts but Audi didn't add the nuts on the order and said i don't need them which is strange because why are they on there now? do i need the nuts? or i'm guessing this is a cowboy fix and don't need the nuts
