    Fuel tank filter screen replacement

    Is there an alternative to buying the hugely expensive fuel tank fitting. https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_In...01-023-06-M100 The mesh screen has pulled away from my original fitting.

    Any ideas or is another wallet bashing imminent.

    EDIT: looks like i can just use a VW screen on my original fitting. Google was my friend.

    Not sure how you can attach the VW one, the original screen is crimped on, I think the VW one is captured by the flange of the fitting?

    For 10 bucks Ed, i think i will give it a go with twisting some mig wire to try to hold it. Nothing to lose.

    Except the screen coming loose in your tank, then you have no filtering and it would be a bit of a pain to try and get out. But you will only know it came loose when your fuel system starts to act up because of debris which will take a bunch of diagnoses to figure out. Geez, what are these cars worth? Pay the $100 and do it right the first time. Sorry, don't like hack jobs.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Mark, i think i might be a little bit smarter than that. I asked if buying new was the only solution, not if i should splash the cash. Maybe i should throw everything out and buy new.

    Sometimes, when considering the labor involved in replacement, that is the wisest choice.

    Couldn't agree more. Just about to throw my CDI harness in the trash.
