HDI fuel leak

My 306 1999 HDI has developed a fuel leak. There is a srong smell of diesel in the engine compartment, and when you remove the engine cover fuel
has collected in the shallow wells and there is also a slow drip though the engine onto the floor. Has anyone else expereinced this problem? Any ideas? Thanks

probably the stop solenoid,( on the feul pump) get it checked by a pug dealer, get a new part rather than one from the scrappies.

The high pressure pipes to the injectors are leaking slightly. There was a recall on this a couple of years ago. Get your dealer to check whether it's been done on your car. They just need tightening up at both ends (14mm or 17mm nuts). If you do it yourself, do not overtigten them or the olive will split and you really will have a leak!!
