  • fuel reservoir before pump

    hello,
    I'm renewing all of my fuel pipes and I don't know if this reservoir (20) is useless or not:

    It's no more on the BMW spares catalogue.
    I'm not going to reinstall it.
    What do you think about?
    Thanks.

    do a search for 'pulse dampener', it can be left out.

      he is not talking about the pulse damper. There is a little "can" before the fuel pump and I wouldn't delete it. Seems to act like a little extra buffer by the looks of it.


      Goodbye M3, you served me well.

            I asked for it and there is no reference, at least here in Spain.

            Do you have the complete reference of it?
            Thanks in advance.

              you asked for #20 in your first post. That seems to be a piece of hose nowadays (Uwe, your right it's not the usually mentioned damper, although it'S referred to as another damper in this diagram http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/E3...ply/fuel_pump/. It probably dampens the pulses from the lift pump inside the fuel tank ) so that should answer your question, i.e. it can be left out.
              #14 is the damper and can be definately be left out.
