HPFP fitting weeping

Well noticed today that the 17mm nut on the HPFP hardline running into the injector rail is wet with gas. Not enough to really drip but it is definitely weeping.

I had it off while doing my carbon clean, and snugged it up as best I could, but it was real hard to get a wrench on it. How tight do I have to realistically get these fittings. I doubt it's crossthreaded as I spun it on by hand.

Not tight at all - from memory on my old MK6R it was something around 8ft lbs

crows foot or stubby 17mm
Lmao been working on this car for 3 years and just learned that a crows foot was a thing. Would have made my life a lot easier. Now that I think about it I doubt that its tight enough. I cranked down pretty hard on the top fitting every time I've removed it and have never had an issue

I might have assumed it was more the price but lets not assume anything

Not many posts under "HPA HPFP failure"

See Jeff had an issue that was fixed as did other post I've seen. I do however remember from my MKV days that Autotech had a high failure rate (yes some to install errors)
