Hi all, A couple of days ago my diesel stop solenoid decided to start leaking when i wanted to use my car. My local motor factors stock 8 different types for my car ('99 1.8TD escort) but they are all wrong. Ford's want £175 for one (not sure if thats for a full pump cos he did mention it not being available as a seperate unit).
The part number they gave me is 1114471 and the part number on the solenoid is MAEDS 124A07
Mine has wiring built-in to it as opposed to nut or spade connections, and the end of the solenoid itself has a filter on it instead of a plunger (Here's a photo of it).
The solenoid works perfectly well so what i want to know is - does anybody know where i can get a replacement solenoid on its own, or tell me a good way of stopping it from leaking (i think its coming from the rubber seal around the wires).
If i can get a solenoid that will physically fit and do the job, the wiring is not at all important as i can adapt that myself.
Thanks for looking.
