I need to replace the fuel line(s) between the filter and pump. The engine cover has rubbed the outer cover of the pump supply line down to the cords. Local dealership wants @$150 for the hoses (they are connected with a metal clamp). I have been so far unable to find anybody who carries these or can even identify the set. VW part no. 1J0-130-307-S. Any help would be appreciated.
The #1 cylinder injector(closest to timing belt) has a small vacuum-type cap on the dead end of the return line. I have replaced this several times due to it drying out,cracking and leaking fuel. I've always replaced it with regular vacuum caps 1/8". Has anybody else experienced this joy? Is there a proper part for this application? Any mods? Does this indicate a problem with the injector?
Thanks Tom

By the way, this site is very cool. I like the personality(s) here! :D

Thanks!

The end cap for the fuel line is VW# 028 130 229 a. Here is a link where you can buy it http://worldimpex.com/parts/genuine-part-cap_165448.html

Being exposed to diesel fuel will do that. Also check the other fuel lines between each injector for leaks. You can use this hose: http://www.tdiparts.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=538

The fuel supply/return lines are http://worldimpex.com/parts/genuine-part-pipe_266980.html , here is another source: http://www.tdiparts.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=979 and are cheaper than what your dealer is asking. You could, in theory use viton line since it's safe for diesel fuel but I'd rather just buy an OEM part since it's hard and shaped correctly. OEM line is also clear, letting you see bubbles, etc.

Good luck!

You're fast!

Thanks. I really need to stick to VW specific part sites! None of the big chain part stores in my area could find these. The dealer parts guy couldn't recall anyone ever inquiring about the hoses, he would have to order it himself! Again, thanks for everything!:nana2:

Common issue, any dealer should be able to find them. Make sure you adjust the engine cover so it doesn't happen again, it's not a normal issue.

Those return lines always go, I think it's just age and heat which breaks them down. If that is the case also check all the vacuum lines. For some reason, they seem to get frayed at the ends, maybe it's the extra vibration of a diesel but VW must use the cloth covered lines for a reason?

fuel line

the braided line I sell for $2 a foot and the #1 cap is another $1.50, I think. Usually have all parts on the shelf. Injector service too, with two stage pop testing cleaning and balancing.
