Fuel tank leak anyone?

Recommended Posts

2001 and she seems to have a slow leak.....dribbling down onto the shroud, then garage floor.

And darn....appears that the differential has to come out for tank replacement, since the tank kinda 'yokes' over the differential....ie tank on both right, left, and top of differential.

If you site up the right side of dif you can see dampness coming down the back side of tank (above it's mid-seam line).

I'm going to experiment with keeping it below half full to see if that has any effect.

Never heard of this before on 996TT but maybe I've missed it.

My 996TT had a massive leak once, open the front hood/trunk, 4x10mm bolts on top of the plastic piece (there is a 10mm in the tool kit), remove the plastic cover and there is the access to the fuel hoses and access to the fuel pump. Mine had a hose that popped off, reattached and made sure it was secure, havent had a problem since.

This might appear to be coming down th shroud, I'd check the hoses and cap first.
