QUICK RELEASE CONNECTOR CONSTRUCTION/OPERATION


BHE011442692T02

• Mainly consists of a retainer and O-ring. The quick release connector is integrated with the fuel hose and therefore cannot be disassembled.

• When the quick release connector is connected, the fuel pipe projection is locked at the clamp lock point. If the clamp release tab is pushed to expand the clamp, the lock point is released allowing the fuel pipe to be disconnected.

• To connect the quick release connector properly, push it into the fuel pipe until a locking click sound is heard.

• New quick release connectors excluding those for the fuel suction pipe, fuel shut-off valve and rollover valve are fitted with a checker tab that prevents improper fit. This checker tab cannot be removed under normal conditions. When the quick release connector is properly connected to the fuel pipe, the lock is released and the checker tab comes off. Due to this, it can be verified that the quick release connector is completely connected.
