Eos (1F7) V6-3.2L (BUB) (2008)
Fuel Pressure: Service Precautions
‹› Fuel system is under pressure! Before opening system, place rags around the connection area. Then release pressure by carefully
loosening the connection.
‹› Vehicles with FSI engine: The engine section of the fuel system, after the high pressure pump, is under extremely high pressure! When
working on engine or fuel injection system, pressure must be relieved to residual pressure before opening high pressure components.
Perform the following steps before beginning work on the 3.2 Liter V6 4V Engine Mechanical, Fuel Injection & Ignition, Engine Code(s): BUB:
‹› Disconnect the battery Ground (GND) cable with the ignition switched off.
‹› Open the fuel filler flap briefly and then close again.
When removing and installing components from full or partially full fuel tanks, observe the following:
‹› The fuel tank must only be partially full. How much fuel can remain in the fuel tank may be read in the respective work description. Empty the fuel
tank if necessary.
‹› Before starting work, switch on the exhaust extraction system and place an extraction hose close to the installation opening of the fuel tank to
extract escaping fuel fumes. If no exhaust extraction system is available, a radial fan (as long as motor is not in air flow) with a displacement
greater than 15 m3/h can be used.
‹› Prevent fuel from contacting the skin! Wear fuel-resistant gloves!
