Hello.
I have a problem with the fuel level sensor, it has a leak. Leaking through the wire. I tried to glue the sealant but after a while it starts to flow again. Who solved this problem? What makes it possible to replace the sensor?
thanks

unfortunately the ebay link does not work anymore. so cant give you the provider name...

search for "fuel-low". there you can find the thread.

good luck.

I had the same with mine on my DB2.....I drained the tank and let it all dry...and used 2-pack epoxy to seal around the area...still all good after 2 years.....Any form of sealant would have to be fuel resistant to work...most aren't....

To be honest Iím very surprised that the low fuel sensor is still working. Most of them pack it in. Iíve not yet seen a suitable replacement item. If itís still working, seal it up with a 2 pack epoxy as 2bims said
