[DML] Re: Louder Fuel Pump Buzzing after Replacing Fuel Hoses at the Fuel Pump -- Sound Deadening Help



Hi

Where my lines touched the back of the access panel there was a 
definate noise transfer... i simply stuck some 'sticky backed' foam 
insulation tape onto the fuel lines at that point to stop this... 10 
min job in all ... no noise now :)
