Fuel Pump/Sender Problem

Apologies if my search missed an obvious answer!

Trying to start the car after winter fettling I managed to fill the garage with petrol this afternoon!

After pulling the boot apart I found the fuel pump/sender broken where the fuel pipe connects. When asking around it looks as if I have to replace the whole unit at £420 from CC, dammit. Tempting though the superglue option might be, I can't see a quick fix being an option! My local Ford dealer was unable to locate the right part, even with the pump on his desk.

Has anybody found a cunning fix for this in the past, or shall I pass the problem to Visa?

One more thing, is there a safe way to remove the broken bit of pump outlet from the fuel pipe without special tools?

Car is 2009 175 Roadsport SV.

Thanks, Jules

A Sigma I presume. If so you can pick up the pump much cheaper than CC. It’s used on a number of cars including Peugeot’s I believe. Is there a part number on it? If so google is your friend.

Sounds like a Duratec rather than a Sigma, but they use the same pump.

You could try messaging johnnyseven as he had a very similar problem on his R400D.  AFAIK, he found a suitable replacement pump on ebay.
