yeah it will allow the fuel to travel back down the line i know it proberly looks like it is coming from the tank but if the reg seals are leaking the air will get into the clear lines the same will happen if the centre line on the filter is leaking at its oring. Considering they are known to fail and are only pence to buy and are easy to fit it must be worth doing before going to the length of fitting a new fuel line. Cheers Martin
you are right... well i spent some hrs at the workshop this eveningnight and i replaced the o-ring on the centre line on the filter and the fuel line from tank to filter ... i got to tired to fiddle with the other 2 o-rings below the filter and when i fired her up i still had air in the lines... as i drove home to sleep the EDC lamp suddently switched off to my big surprise hehe but the car is still
great thanks .. ill check all those things today i saw this morning that right side brakelightrear light bulb is burned can that really cause limp mode i actually had a vacuumhose that was off on one headlamp fitted it yesterday and they work now ill listen for leaks... thats just crazy that these things can cause engine failure haha Quote Originally Posted by walsi Hi ya so we are getting somewhere

permanently on means a unit failure.... could be the pump could be the controller could be a wheel sensor most likely its a broken wire from the body to a sensor... the wires crack and the connectors corrode... its a problem of age and road salt. easiest test is a wire patch from the sensor to control unit... long piece of lighting flex connected by scotchlok connectors is easiest and normally cures

Ill look as well as looking for crimpedsoldered in wires. Dont know whether the fuse module can be saved. Ill know once Ive de-soldered the old fuse off and can then taken the cover off. The vito
I dont know if vitos the same but Ive read that some of the MBs use the indication for interior lamps as well. Another hint is that if you use bulbs of the wrong size (fx. 5W instead of 7W) the indication will stay on. Ive had the indicaion turn on several times - and it has allways turned out to be right - a bulb somewhere did have a problem. One time a changed the bulbs in my headlights to Osram
