Re: Fuel pump won't seal in the tank

I have been looking for information on this issue as we have the very same problem with a 53 plate Diesel Clio we have , I have bought the seal etc from renault and was advised by the mechanic to empty the tank as much as possible before trying to fit the new seal etc , its also said that the swap needs to be done as quick as possible due to the problem of these tanks warping , At my work we have a very good sealant and I thought about using it but not sure if its a good idea as this stuff sets pretty much rock hard however if the new seal does not stop the leak I may try another sort of seal/gasket but as my wife just filled the car up we have to wait a couple of weeks or 600 miles before its near empty , damm you diesel Clio and your 62mpg lol
