Fuel line banjo fitting

Recommended Posts

Should there be a copper washer between the banjo and the fuel tank as well as one between the banjo and the bolt? After having replaced the fuel line between the tanks I have weeps coming from the banjo to tank connection and wonder if I may have dropped the washers when removing the bolts originally. Parts manual doesn't even show what goes on underneath the tanks.

Washer both sides of a banjo...not necessarily the same size, though.

Thanks chaps. Drained the tanks for the 4th time, fitted washers both sides and managed to shear one of the banjo bolts...:cry:

New ones on order. Interestingly, SJ lists them as only 2 washers per car which made me question it.
