just bought a mk3 fiesta. the fuel pump doesnt prime on ignition, unless i hit under the rear seats a little.told by a few mates who love their fords tht its quite common and he says that its the conections on the pump getting dirty. when ive cleaned them up does anyone know how to keep them protected.

any advice apreciated
