re-attaching fuel hose to fuel rail.

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I am in a process of re-assembling the intake manifold and was wondering what I would need to use to "glue"/re-attach the fuel hose to the fuel rail.

Please see the attached pictures.

When I disconnected the fuel hose, I realized that it may have been "glued" and I accidentily ripped it from the hose.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You have not provided year and model data, but I think the line in your picture is a simple push on and a barbed connection by the fuel pressure regulator.

It's interesting that it doesn't even need a hose clamp with that much of pressure.

There are a lot of lines with barbed fittings used in the automotive markets which do not require clamps; the line is single use (it cannot be pulled off and reused, it has to be cut down past where it last fit on). In fact, you should not use clamps on these barbed fittings as the clamp will cause the line to be cut by the barbs. Here is an example on a Jag, the little metal cup at the end of the hose is permanently on the barbed fitting and is just there to dress the end of the hose; no clamps used:

thank you folks for the reply ( 1998 Boxster 2.5 5 speed )

No wonder it was really hard to pull that hose off the metal fitting.

Should I just remove the black inner part of the hose from the metal fitting ( pic. 1 ) and cut about an inch of the hose ( pic. 2) and re-attach it?

Thanks JFP. Makes sense for single use hoses.

As long as the hose is not dry, brittle or hard; just cut a bit off and use it.
