Hello Folks!

 

This is my first post here and consider me fairly noob in Diesel Fuel systems. I have a 2000 Ford Focus Ghia 1.8 TDDI which is a brilliant runner other than a recent problem I noticed. I pulled into my driveway this afternoon and saw white smoke coming from under the hood. I could smell diesel and there was a trail of leakage upto my parking spot as well. I popped the hood, started the car and bam! a fountain of my precious diesel everywhere! It's the fourth injector and the leak off pipe is missing...

 

Now I read a fair bit on the forums about how I can procure myself some of them pipes from Hellf**** but I have no idea where does is go. I see no dangling old pipe or have no clue where that pipe would go from the injector. I don't understand why would it even come off on it's own with my rather low rev and tamed driving :) I understand that it would complete a loop back to fuel system but have no clue how in this specific engine layout. Any photo is very welcome!!!!

Ah well... If it benefits anyone, the last injector has a rubber bung that seals off the leak off loop. I figured it out myself and got it from halfords.
