Tank switch - honker 2000 (probably all since 1996)

A description of the various components of the fuel system with particular emphasis on the tank valve/switch and its sealing.

In the case of my car (honker 2000), I had two tanks and their switch from the factory, but someone once had to unscrew the rigid fuel lines from it, and after re-screwing there was a leak (fuel droplets appeared on the valve).

Individual fuel system components in the immediate vicinity of the tank switch:

  • Valve/flug switch-at a cost of $200-300 depending on the store-its construction is so simple that it is unlikely to be damaged.
Factory new tank switches
Factory new tank switches

NOTE: In honkers of the older generation (up to 1995) there are other tank valves, i.e. with stubs for a larger thread. Since production was taken over by Daewoo the stubs have been reduced in size. Fuel lines may also differ.

  • Rigid wires (power and overflow) for both tanks and front wires (the cost of one new wire is about 30-40zł):
cable 001208200
cable 221208200/001208200 (power cable - left tank)

- line 221208100/001208100 (overflow line - left tank)

cable 001208400
cable 221208400/001208400 (power cable - right tank)
cable 001208500
line 221208500/001208500 (overflow line - right tank)
cable 001208100
wire 221208100/001208100 (front overflow wire)

  • Screws 782014596 - E8Zn - cost about 10zl/piece
  • Sealing rings(barrels) 779056585 - D8Zn sealing ring - cost about 5zl pcs (prices from honker stores, in others probably much cheaper)

NOTE: After each unscrewing of rigid fuel lines from the tank valve/switch, it is imperative to replace the sealing rings(barrels). Otherwise, there is a high possibility of leakage. Replace the screws only if they are found to be worn/damaged.

In order to properly seal the rigid wires in the switch ferrules, it is necessary to put a screw on the wire and then a sealing ring. The wire prepared in this way should be screwed into the corresponding spigot of the switch.

Once the screws are properly tightened, there should no longer be any leaks.
