Replace Fuel Line

Has anyone replaced their fuel lines? I need to replace mine, but it looks like it may be difficult. The lines look like they are in very hard to get places. The rave manual doesn't show much on how to do it. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

It is not real common to have them fail. What happen to your rock damage or rust, can you section out the bad spot?

If it's a DII, most of the lines are plastic.
Why do you want to replace them?

Yes, I am still alive, and still in the Rover parts business.
Text me for greatest likelihood of finding me.

The quick disconnect and part of the line broke near the fuel rail.

The fuel line is 5/16"/8 mm nylon line. You can carefully remove the rubber sheath to expose the nylon, then use a double compression fitting to connect a replacement connector.

So I managed to replace it. I always take for granite how much easier life is when lifting the vehicle. Took some patience will reaching in places I couldn't see, but it only took about 1 hour to do.
