Thread size for 2002 955i fuel connector
On the off chance someone knows the answer to this question.
Some previous mechanic stripped the threads on a plastic fuel connector and the metal where that connector screws into the fuel plate assembly, then tried to fix the mistake with epoxy, eventually causing fuel to drip onto the exhaust line. Which is not desirable. And apparently the plastic connectors have been replaced with metal connectors.
If the mechanic can figure out thread size of fuel plate assembly hole then he can tap it, and all I need will be a new connector.
If he cant, I will need a new fuel plate (a lot more expensive and probably hard to find.)
So if anyone knows what size and type of thread / tap is needed it would be helpful. A good and fast source for the parts would also be helpful (I am in Saratoga Springs NY and not close to any Triumph dealer.)
I am not certain why he cant try random metric bolts to determine thread size. But then again I am not a mechanic.
