Ive got a 99 focus 1.8 diesel, when i changed the rocker cover gasket last week i noticed upon closer inspection that my flexible pipes that go between the injectors are pretty deterioated, due to the oil leak from the gasket, ive heard its not a hard job to replace these pipes but not sure, haynes is a bit vague, garage want 30 plus pipe which is about a fiver, then vat, any body any wiser im quite handy with the spanners , im based in basingstoke if somebody wanted to have a nose

Have something to contribute?

Sounds like the leakback pipes. These are quite easy to change though.

Just pull the old pipes off the injectors, they will probably break as you pull them off. The new pipes are push fit onto the injectors. Easy job, should take less the half an hour. Save yourself 30 quid too. :lol:

You can buy the leakback pipe from almost any car shop, and just cut to size.
