I have recently acquired a P5B coupe. The fuel return pipe is currently (or was!) attached to the underside of the nearside sill using self-adhesive plastic clips. Clearly this is not correct but although I have owned a P5 previously it was a long time ago and I just cannot remember how the return pipe should be routed. Advice would be welcome.
The nearside sill is correct. The pipe is attached by a series of metal clips, as per photo, using self tapping screws, the holes for which should be observable. These are obtainable through the trade.
The pipe is led down the left hand side of the scuttle, in engine compartment, then fed between body and sub-frame, being clipped to the body, then to the sill, attached along the inside side, eventually over the wheel arch, as per the lines on the other side, to a grommet into the boot.
Many thanks. That sounds much more sensible than the current arrangement on my car where it has been fixed to the underside of the sill using self-adhesive pads/clips which have let go and allowed the pipe to drop! I shall refix with the correct clips in the correct position all as you describe.
Mine has no return pipe. Its been cut off at some time,I think the run underneath has been removed. I suppose they reduce the risk of vapour lock,especially with the mechanical pump. I wonder if its worth replacing it?
