Hi!
Trying to sort one problem, got another worst than the first one, I think.
After changing fuel pumps, I now get a fuel leak from the white HOSE connector. All looks good in one place and fitting tight, but with engine working a lot of fuel comes out from that spot. Spare part is a hose with no. 60623779, I believe. It is no longer available and replacing it wouldn't be easy too.
Anyone knows another safe way to stop the leak?
Thanks!

fitted old pump back again. fuel leak is gone, so I suppose the problem is the pump and not the hose connector.

eek!

yes; sounds like a bad pump;

one is a send and one a return certainly

I think the larger one is the breather for the fuel tank filler pipe
