    Default Gs pallas

    hi people
    can anyone assist. is anyones aware if the low pressure "RUBBER" pipes in the photo are the same as any other model of a citroen.
    i would like to replace these with the same however these parts are no longer available, hence the question. any assistance with a solution would be appreciated.

    because of the age of the car and the pipes, we fear that there could possibly be a leak and also would prefer to replace with new while the engine is bind re fitted into the sub frame.

    thanks

    fuel line would do for that ... It would probably last the life of the car as it's internally re-enforced

    Hi Lamoor,

    I just replaced a couple of those lines this weekend on my GS. The local Clark Rubber store has many different sizes of fuel line. If you cant get it from there the local Bursons store or Repco would have it.

    I didn't replace the lower two as I will leave that for when I have more access with the engine out. It would prove to be difficult in situ. (But not impossible)

    The tubes won't look the same, but they will be a hell of a lot more reliable. The old tube had split where it expands over the barb on the plastic tube. I suspect it was original.
    Regards,

    Garth.
