After smelling petrol fumes internally and externally i'm now told i need a new petrol tank!! (under warranty)

Car is currently at SMC slough but i'm being told that the fuel tank is on 'factory back-order' with no guaranteed delivery date!!

Is this normal, is there anyway i can get a new tank myself and get them to fit it...? From where? Rimmers?

thanks all

Do you get the smell all the time, or only when you've recently filled up?

Had a problem on my ZT after the filter came apart - basically I'd not fitted the seal correctly, and fuel was peeing out.

Split??! Yikes!

Guess you could try Rimmers and XPart, don't know if SMC would pay for it though from them, no harm in trying I guess. Last resort, try a scrapyard too maybe

Yes tell SMC to stop pratting you about and get off their butts and source one

Or if you bought the car from them you could strongly suggest they take one off a stock vehicle of which they probably still have millions kicking around

fairly sure its the wrong one

Garage have now decided the wait for a factory order will be too long so theyre effectively writing the car off and have offered to eother source me another of similar spec or my money back!

If anyone has a 2.5 180+ auto ZT-T, loaded spec and in v good condition with sub 70k on the clock that they're looking to sell, i may be interested...?

Just let me know, thanks

Looks like there are only 2 tanks....diesel or petrol, but probably acedemic if they're buying it back.
