Diesel leak from leak off pipe

Hi. I noticed a big patch of rainbow water around my car last night, and after ruling out all fluids I took off the plastic engine cover to find one of the leak off pipes is leaking from both sides!! Is it a question of just sliding off the old one and fitting a new one? Or will I need to do anything else?

Thanks

If its just the leak off pipe yes. they just pull off and new ones just slide over. Should only cost a few quid from most motor factors.

Hi, thanks. Yeah one off the braided pipes was wet on both ends so I'm hoping it's just that. The ones fitted look original and with the car having 75k on the clock I suppose I should change then all. One of them seems to disappear down the engine so not sure how to get to that? Thanks

The long one goes down and back up under the injection pump. Take the intercooler pipe off the from of the engine and just bend it out the way, still a little fidderly but manageable.

Ah OK thanks, 2 silly questions though. Is the long pipe connected at both ends and can i just undo the intercooler pipe without anything needing to be drained? ? I'm new to diesels so may appear a bit thick!!

Yes to both questions. The Fuel pipe is connected the same at both ends, just pull off/push on. The pipe at the front of the engine is just for air flow, no need to drain anything at all.
