Aha, now that is a great idea. Well done Steve.

I don't think there's anything behind the liner stud - it just disappears into the 'girder' thing I mentioned earlier. All the fuel lines in that area are visible and there's nothing else I can think of that might be lurking in the girder.

The rivet fixings should also work for the 3 sheared off fuel line cover studs. This pic shows all 4 stud positions arrowed red.



I just need to drill them out - which will probably be a lot harder than it sounds.

Question Other end of tunnel

Where does this tunnel go?

It obviously carries the fuel lines towards the engine but I don't know where the other end is.

(Prone to rust at this end).

If one end is in the wheel arch and the other end is under the seat - what stops water running along the tube into the car?

(I can't pop the seat base at the moment)

Nothing clean the area where the tubes go through & add sealant maybe

Nothing? Maybe that's why these cars are always full of condensation - there's a railway tunnel into the wettest place on earth. Whose brilliant idea was that.

I'll clean it up and add sealant - or maybe expanded foam.
