Many thanks for your reply ... but need to get totally educated on this please.
I understand about how the leak occurs, but didn't realise the updated fuel filter unit 52126232AF is not a direct plugin replacement with the existing wiring on my 2007.... is that correct ? (Just re read your earlier post)
So I presume the existing old harness can be adapted with the new pigtail or is it essential to purchase a complete new harness ?
Got no issue with mine currently but have read about these issues and bought a new fuel separator to replace.
Having purchased this new unit earlier this year I thought the only issue was the water in fuel sensor as this is a different design also. The existing pigtail from my current main harness is not long enough to reach the new sensor and even if it did are the ends compatible ?
Again I presume the new harness 56055552AE you purchased over comes this issue ?
So if I'm getting this straight (eventually) even the above new harness requires updating with the thermostat pigtail 68043086AC ???
I'm I there yet ?
If so, this is turning out to be a pain in the arse and the pocket
The dealers are useless when it comes to essential detailed information such as this.
Many thanks (in advance)
