    Just niticed diesel leaking from front right by the egr valve. Any ideas of how big a job it is. Looks like its coming from fuel lines above turbo hose. Mainly on 1st start up

    A picture of the offending area would be helpful. ;)

    Click in the ‘reply’ box. At the bottom right is a button labelled ‘Upload a File’.

    Easy job for a competent DIYer. As long as the parts to fix it can be found. I think hose PN: WJH104061 would probably fit ok, if it's the elbow hose leaking. If it's a straight hose, then any auto-factors would do it. It could also be the pipe coupler, which again would come from an auto-factors. You'll also need some worm clips.

    No. Worm clips, or worm drive clips, are the type that use a screw thread to tighten a steel band. They are commonly called Jubilee clips, but that is just one manufacturer. Like this. Screenshot_20171201-150325.png I prefer Norma worm drive clips myself, although they are hard to get.

    Hose clips are a personal thing. However I generally think that the manufacturers did there homework on which is best. Hence I prefer to use what LR fitted from new. ;)
    Which was this.

    The clips that are fitted to the fuel thermo valve already are re-useable, they can be open with a thin bladed screw driver, then squeezed back together with some pliers, it maybe that the hose as flared on the end and needs cutting back a little, this is a judgment you need to make as you on there on the job, view it and make your decision then, at the same time you can see what size the clip is.

    These vales are also on the R40 but under the rear f the car photo 2 below, the hoses tend to leak at the ends because of flaring.

    Photo two is of the same vale but on a Rover 75 diesel, which uses the same thermo valve it is situated at the rear of the R75 photo is just an example, so no need to worry there.
