Hi, I have just noticed a big puddle of diesel under the RR it seems to be coming from the very top seal of the injection pump, three torx and one funny shaped bolt...I have read a couple of threads on this but I'm still not sure if I can just unbolt it and reseal it without having to worry about locking the pump in place, has anyone else had this problem? And is it simple to fix? And also, I need to bleed the brakes, is it as complicated as it sounds lol and is there anything in particular I need to be careful with, I have just replaced the accumulator and pump, but the brakes are still spongy...many thanks if anyone can help

Brake bleeding proceedure is in RAVE. Follow it to the letter for best results.

You can replace the seals (there's 2 of them) on the injection pump, but they are not that easy to find, with Bosch being quite protective about selling just parts.
The funny shaped bolt can be undone by tapping a (soft, i.e. low quality) 6mm socket onto it.
After you have replaced the seals, you will have to adjust the pump to get it running OK. You'll find the bolt holes on one part of the head are oval. Start out with the head in the frontmost position, all bolts in but not tightened. Try to start the engine and move the head of the pump to the rear until it starts. Be prepared to cut the ingition immediately if you see the revs increasing after startup, if the head it set too far to the rear the engine could rev up beyond control. It takes some try and error, but it's doable.

Greetz,

Filip
