Looking to replace the original, factory rubber fuel lines in the engine bay. Started to notice some slight surface cracking and figured this would be a great time to change them out.

-Oem lines 1J0133986BB.
-German Auto Parts looks to have good quality, high pressure fuel hose (http://www.germanautoparts.com/productdisplay/51310) but not sure if that's the proper size and would like to replace the quick disconnects too with new ones.

Any other options or recommendations?


What's everyone replacing their lines with?

For my inline fuel pump i used 5/16 line.

Debating upgrading the whole car, not sure if our OEM size is 7mm or 8mm. 5/16 is closer to 8mm, 9/32 would be about 7mm.



Found a link, not R32 specific but it applies, DIY : How to replace the fuel lines located in the engine bay on a VR6


the quick disconnects should be reusable on the rubber side.

Ideally, I would like to stick with an OEM solution/visually OEM solution and would prefer to refresh the 13 year old quick-disconnect/bundy fittings too.


Spoke with the dealership today, 1J0133986BB (BJS) is currently a "RED ORDER" item only, and could take up to 2 weeks to arrive.


I came across another set - 1J0133986BM, looks to be from 3.2 24v (BFH/BML) - fit looks like it would be spot on just like on the BJS

In addition, 1J0133986BL is from the 2.8 24v (BDF) - fit wouldn't be perfect since the fuel rail is slightly different but could work.

I fully understand.

Appears ECSTuning at one time carried it but no longer does.


The 1J0133986BM looks like the better fit. The 1J0133986BL has noticeably different bends, but the BM version appears the same, or very subtly different. Not cheap though. From what I can tell "fuel line repair kits" have the same quick disconnects.
