RE: [DML] Accumulator area leak

Josh, if he didn't cross thread the fitting, then tighten it up a little
more and it should stop leaking. Those are new Bosch units, not NOS.

Subject: [DML] Accumulator area leak

As by the title you can guess that Ive discovered a fuel leak under 
my car right where the accumulator is at. Ive gotten under there and 
investigated and found that is comming somwhere from the area of 
where the accumulator hooks upto the metal line that goes to the fuel 
filter. I went thru the archives to see what material I could find on 
anyone whos had this problem before, and yes I found that others ahve 
had the problem, so I know ill get a lot of responses back from the 
pros who have dealt with with in the past. 

The accumulator is a spealtauto replacment that is relativly new and 
was installed by a mechanic by its previous owner. The leak is 
dripping from the L shaped unit ( Figure 1 @ ) so im not 
quit sure its the metal hose intself but rather the figure 1 unit. 

If worse comes to worse then what if I have to replace the metal hose? 
what are my options here? just by looking at this I see no way how I 
can possibly just take the old metal hose out and remove it than feed 
a new one thru. I rather lost on this issue, the only thing ive done 
is attempt to tighten the 2 bolts on the figure 1 L shaped unit, alas 
no improvment from that. What should i be looking at here as far as 
damaged lines needing replacment, or likelihoods of methods to fix 
this without new lines.
