    Hi there,

    Anyone have any experience with the fuel system of this model??

    We sprung a leak last week. Thought it was a rotted fuel pipe and it was
    pumping out when the engine was on. A bit dodgy at that point and got AA
    relayed home.

    This model you has a "saddle bag" shape tank whiich meant hubby had to
    partly remove it to get at the piping which was rusty but the problem had
    been caused by the control valve which sits in a plastic "housing" - wrong
    word but best I can think of . One of the plastic nozzles that the petrol
    pipe connects to has sheared off.

    At this point we are not sure whether the control valve has been messed with
    before ( a couple of newer jubilee clips on other side) and whether it was
    in its factory position. There is a maintenance hatch at the back of the
    boot space and I suspect it should have been visible through that - but its
    only a guess.

    We have the V70 Haines manual but it doesnt cover the AWD models. The
    control valve is no: 0280160618 made by Bosch for Volvo. We went to
    the nearest volvo parts who at first said they could get it but then after a
    100mile round trip to collect the wrong bit, they now say they arnt sure if
    they can get it at all. It is repairable but given the position it makes
    more sense to fit a new one.

    I know its a long shot but can anyone know were I can find some maitenace
    manuals for this models fuel system.

    Thanks in advance.

    :eek:)
