Removal of entire fuel line

Would like to know how the entire fuel lines from fuel pump to threated connection in the rear of the car, are to be removed ?

It seems that the banjo / nut can not be pulled to the welded bracket on the body shell when pulling the lines backwards.
When pulling the lines forward, the shrinked section can not be pulled through either due to the length off this section.

Do i simply have to cut the nylon fuel lines off in the shrink connection ?

I used the technique from this posting.
I removed from the front and installed them by pulling from the rear.
It will go thru that metal guide.
You have the advantage if the steering rack is still removed (judging from your picture).
How hard is it to change the fuel lines?

If you still find it difficult you might want to check with Len (BoxsterGT here on the site). Also can make fuel lines to your specifications.

The factory installed these Tunnel lines from front to back, and to replace them they must come out at the front. Replacing is the same procedure unless you are installing my tunnel lines.

I offer the same Polyamide Tunnel lines without the front hoses attached. Instead they have M14 fittings at both ends. I provide a Female coupler and this makes it a simple job to connect the (my) replacements at the rear and pull them through as you remove the original.



Once in place my replacement front hoses are installed. Not an easy task but much less difficult and time consuming than the originals.

Steen, Len's lines are excellent and have been used by many of us over here. The fact that he adds connections so in the future the rubber-only front and rear sections could be replaced, while leaving the polyamid tunnel lines alone is what makes them so cool. They are beautifully assembled from the best materials, and they go in perfectly, using the union Len provides to use the old hoses to fish the new ones through the tunnel. I did them in my 82 SC. I bet the shipping costs to you would be reasonable. Best of luck, John in Connecticut/USA.

Unless it seems if you use original type lines in a '74 or '75 which has a slightly crooked/bent end at the gas tank side. I way I see me pulling mine out is to use the weed wacker line and cut the crooked end off the front, and pull it through to the back with the new line from the front.

Couldn't agree more, I just did the complete line swap yesterday. Took most of the day working by myself, but the products are excellent. Took 9 days for the package to get to me in Norway, will most likely be faster to Denmark. Feel free to ask if you need advice.

The slope is not slippery; in fact it is entirely frictionless.

steeen -

From your photo it seems you must have a 911SC or Carrera but you never actually told us.

Did you complete the fuel line replacement?

Are you happy with the results?

Thanks Evan. I wasn’t sure since he removed it from his signature.

Hi Matt,

If you add your email link to your member info I can email you directly.

I do not use pms as we cannot send photos and its hard to track messages, at least for me being somewhat computer ignorant.
