Default Fuel line fix

While pulling out the filler cap assembly to change my thermostat on a 2002 PT Cruiser, I snapped the plastic fuel line fitting that is behind the filler cap and runs underneath the manifold. It broke at the cluster under the left side of manifold. What line is this and will I have to replace the whole thing? It looks like you have to remove the manifold to do so. I thought of using a smaller diameter plastic line to insert in the two broken end to splice it together . Is there any other easier fix? Thanks.

there is no easier or safer fix than replacing it. what you want to do will restrict the flow and might cause it to run too lean at high rpm. it is also not a very safe idea. there is 58psi in that line. if your fix ever decides to leak, it can spray FAR with that much pressure.

What is that line called so I can order one? I don't have a manual. It runs from the firewall underneath the the length of the manifold. I'm not sure where it runs too.

Bury, just sent you a PM regarding this, might want to go read it and see if it's what you want.

Actually the line runs from an aluminum canister on the firewall to what looks like an aluminum fitting right under the left edge of manifold. Can't find a pic of it anywhere and need to figure out how to remove it. Anyone?

found a part number here:
Fuel Line Leaks- Look at your PT

http://www.factorychryslerparts.com/...5093672AA.html

push in the white clip and then pull (like an air compressor hose). it should come off really easily.

i've seen a lot of people breaking that line on this forum.
fuel line question...

just take it off and have the parts guy at the dealer look it up. should be a common/stocked part

Here is a pic. The line on the left with the mesh sheath. Is this the one you refer to? How much fuel will release when I take it off? Thanks for the help!

Sounds familiar...I broke the same line earlier this year replacing the thermostat.
Broke that darn fuel supply line today...
Ordered a new one online (Ebay IIRC) and had it within a few days. Easy to replace actually...
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS... but...
my line broke with the PT right in front of my garage/shop's big door...blocking in two other cars inside. I used a length of -06AN braided fuel line, hose clamped to both fitting ends of the hard line after removing the plastic crap line...in order to move the PT out of my way. Worked fine.
