Petrol smell in cabin

Recommended Posts

Hello

3.0cc petrol 2004 plate

Petrol  smell in cabin after braking. It’s fine in a straight line just a whiff of petrol after braking, assuming the slosh forward. 

Any know culprits for this problem?

Thanks

SOLVED!

It transpired that the fuel smell was due to one of the new ignition coils boot, not being located over the spark plug hole correctly.

luckily I have a good sense of smell and managed to locate the smell to the spark plug area. I found no other leaks anywhere. I had recently changed the plugs and coils. On further inspection after following my nose, I could see that one of the boots wasn’t entirely over the spark plug hole, this is where the smell came from. I checked tightness of the spark plug and then repositioned the boot correctly. The smell hasn’t returned since.

I'm having the same issues after having the ignition coils replaced by my local indie shop...and am 1200 miles away riding out the COVID19 quarantine with family, so can't return to the shop that did the work to address care what should have been done already, everything's closed, and the shops here are way overpriced anyway.

Could you please describe the needed tools and how to access the ignition coils/plugs so I can check and tighten as needed myself?

Thanks so much.
