    Hi All,

    Looks like I have a very slow/ tiny leak from the Schrader valve on the fuel rail and am struggling to find a replacement valve core that is rated for the fuel/ pressure.
    It doesn't have a cap either due to some lovely previous owner.


    Thanks in advance.

    The valve is a pressure relief valve, did you check the fuel pressure using a pressure gauge?

    At any rate, try the dealer or second hand part on eBay?

    I'm aware what it is and no, I haven't done anything with it (recently bought the car).

    And I can't find the part on ebay or anywhere else. Plenty of valves for tyres, but i'm imagining you need one rated for use with petrol.

    And I guess MB is the next place to try, but I thought i'd ask around here first in case anybody knew where to get a simple replacement.

    Thanks for the replies.
