2004 t1N (400 000km)

The two rubber elbow lines leading into/out of the high pressure pump have become brittle with age and weep fuel in freezing temps.

Getting prepped to swap these out, just looking for input on weather not I'll need to bleed the lines after the swap?


Should I just crack open #5 injector and cycle the key? Looking to avoid a frustrating no start if at all possible.


Thanks all..

No bleeding will be necessary with a Sprinter Common Rail Direct Injection Bosch system.

You should probably follow the fuel filter change ignition key cycle method to push fuel around in the system. Even after doing that it may take a couple extra cranks for the engine to fire off.
