cracked bulkhead?


Sorry, tried the search function but no luck... Know it's been discussed here.
Anyone help with a link or advice please? It's the original bulkhead from '06 GS, tank was swapped to Adventure about 2 years ago.

A better description might have helped but I think I am looking at a crack in a fuel quick disconnect?

yeah, sorry but I'm still a little 'cited... came in to work this morning, smelled gas when I stopped - pouring down and dripping onto exhaust

My fear is that the cracked part is integral to the whole bulkhead, not just the fitting. I unplugged the fuel line and turned key, appears to be seeping from the white vertical line just above the bulkhead.

They are replaceable and unscrew. There is a recall for something in this area but not sure what it is.

Check with your dealer.There is a recall for the fuel pump and I just had the one on my 2005 gs repaired at no cost.Mine was not leaking,so they shrunk/pressed a ring on the fitting.Dealer said if it had been worse they would replace the fuel pump and hoses,about a three hour job.

I didn't have a recall, but when I spoke with one of the tech's he told me that it usually took about a week to get parts in and you couldn't get expedited shipping.

I understood this as if BMW is footing the bill, you can't pay extra to get the parts sent next day. So if it's covered you will be waiting a while even if there is shop time available.

Someone who's had this done please tell me that I'm wrong, and this doesn't sound crazy.
