Mike

I'd like to see the accumulator inside! I've always wanted to cut one apart 
but never had a chance ;)
Please, send them to my email or simply upload them to the photo section of 
Yahoo for everyone to see.

Thank you

Okay, I agree you a 100% on what you said concerning the extra hose (small 
end of the accumulator). I found a Bosch web site and found that the small 
end is actually supposed to be vented to the atmosphere, not attached to a 
return fuel line. To be sure, I cut one of the bad ones I had in half. To 
actually see what was inside was very interesting. (pictures available for 
anyone who wants to see the parts)

Now, this raises another question: If the small end is supposed to be vented 
to the atmosphere, are we not damaging the bladder inside the accumulator by 
having fuel present on both sides (the return line from the engine is just a 
simple "T" fitting and it is attached directly to the small end, with no way 
to block off unwanted fuel).

I fully understand that if the bladder fails, you don't want to pee fuel all 
over the underside of the car, but shouldn't that excess fuel go somewhere 
besides an open fuel line, which is connected to a semi-pressurized fuel 
tank??
