Assuming you have removed the retaining clip on top, Just wiggle it and pull up at the same time.

They can be very tight sometimes but it will just pop out.

Er, that certainly wont be happening in its current state Laugh

I managed to get it out in the end, used a flat headed screwdriver to slowly pop it out, bit like opening a tin of paint Big grin Now to paint the rail!

thread revival i know, but do you have to do anything to de pressurise the fuel rail in order to avoid a face full of mace?

fire the engine up and knock the inertia switch, it will die due to the fuel pump cutting out and there will be no pressure in the fuel rail then Smile

Getting it out is hard, but how do you get it back in? Just press f*cking hard?

Easier to put it in with fuel rail bolted back on I guess?

Bolt the fuel rail back on then push it back in........ and hope you dont catch the 'O' ring! If you do dont ask pug as they'll tell you that you need to buy a whole pressure reg for about £60, take the seal to ur local hydraulics place who will furnish you with about 50 'O' rings for about £2!

Strangest question I have ever asked on this forum but, what lube would you use?

anything to hand really, the o-rings are fuel resistant.

Treat it like a virgin , plenty of lube to get it in , twist it arround a bit as you go in making sure its fully home , pull it out again to make sure it looks ok , then in again to finish the job !

Thread revival time rather than start a new one.

Is there a cheaper place to get these regulators rather than from Peugeot? Just checked servicebox and they are nearly £92 now.

EDIT: Found what appears to be the correct Bosch unit here, anyone ever bought from these before? Might be worth a gamble at <£25

That's the correct one in your link. Bosch 0 280 160 560.

For the sake of completeness: Vaseline is perfect for lubing the O ring and will help to push the regulator in without damaging the ring. If the regulator doesn't want to go in some gaspipe pliers can help to push it against the fuel rail. Clean the rust on the mating surface before. Little rust flakes that fall inside the rail can be removed with a hoover. It will suck in some of the petrol and carry the debris along. You don't want it to get into your injectors. I'm not responsible if your vac catches fire. Big grin Your vac will stink after that so best to leave it outside for a while.

i couldn't get mine in whatsoever without a bit of vaseline. mine on my 205gti6 lost the clip and about 100 miles later the FPR popped off. had to bodge it with two nails at the side of the road thanks to a local DIY shop LOL very difficult to fit a new one anyway!

I'm not 100% that I need a new one, I started running lean so thought I might aswell fit a new one whilst trying to diagnose the problem. I had the laptop plugged into the ecu and the tps appears to be reading consistently fine. Ive just put a new rail on and re-used the old regulator for the time being until the new one gets ordered so I can start and move the car.
Would adding octane booster upset the aem wideband readings as it only did it after I'd added a bottle to the tank.
