Default 2.7 CRD Fuel Lines & O-Rings

Anyone know if the 2.7 CRD fuel line O-rings are replaceable with generic (ie Repco) O-rings?

Are the clips at each end of the lines available in generic form or only from Jeep? Are the replaceable at all or do you have to buy the whole fuel line?

I replaced the fuel filter today and in the process of bleeding air from the lines have come across a leak on the upper line on the front of the engine. Most of the clips are old brittle and broken.

There is a post here somewhere about that same thing but I can't find it.
Anyway the fuel line part numbers are:
Filter to Pump :
MB A6650700532
Jeep 05080482AA possibly $50

Pump to fuel rail:
MB A6120703232
Jeep K05140798AA possibly $120

I haven't got around to researching alternatives connectors yet but will have to as mine need replacing as well, should be reasonably common I think.

I have listed other part numbers here;

Also any fuel rated 'O' ring of the right size would be okay.

Thanks Drover,

I ran around a the few local stores that were open today and came up with absolutely nothing. In the process of removing the o-ring off the connector I destroyed it (brittle) which indicates it was probably time to replace them anyway. I'll make some phone calls tomorrow on those part numbers you listed and I'll also chase up some o-rings. The O-rings are a square section type not your usual doughnut shape. Jeep sits in the carport until then..

Keep you posted.

Just curious but when you change the filter you don't have to bleed the lines just fill the filter up with fuel till it comes out the upper bleed screw. Those fuel line connectors are just to dodgy to fiddle with too much I reckon.

I've been going to go to a diesel engine shop to see if they have the clips or lines listed, as a normal auto shop like Auto Pro wouldn't.

Also the o-rings need to be made from vitron rubber not nitrile which is standard for black o-rings, otherwise they swell up go spongey & leak.

Yep, I'll be doing that next time thats for sure..truth be told I knew I should have done that but installed the filter empty and then realised I forgot to fill it up and though, feck it, I'll just suck the fuel though the lines to the filter how hard can it be?

The point turbomart makes about the o-rings is valid and something I am aware of but thought they may be readily available as a common fuel injector o-ring. Sadly not.
