Fuel leak

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I'm new here, just started this. Wanted to do it sooner, but i guessed with this car, it's gonna be sooner or later.

So i own a 02' 986 Boxster 2,7.
Yesterday i went for a little joy ride in the evening, and after an hour of driving a started to smell gas, raw gas in the cabin.
And the smell was getting stronger by the mile. So i drove home, as i was just a few minutes away. Parked the car in the garage, and i noticed a few drops of fuel on the floor. I just shook my head, and went to bed.
This morning i woke up, got some coffee, and went to the garage, the floor was dry, so no leaks during the night. When i started the car, the fuel started dripping quite a lot. it was actually pouring..

Also there are no lights on the dash..
Now the car is fairly new to me and I've not had any issues before. I've only replaced the Belt a few weeks back, as one of the round things it goes on, cracked. (I don't know whats it called in English) And I've replaced the belt myself. And it drove perfectly.. Until yesterday.

But anyway, i just wanted to post this here. Maybe someone could give me some advice, solution any kind of feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Here are a few pics if it helps. You can actually see it leaking. It does seem like it's coming straight from the motor, but i haven't a clue.

Thank You.
