Fuel rail threaded insert failed
Checking a few things on my fuel system in anticipation of installing RRFPR / braided lines today
Realised one of the threaded inserts for the fuel rail was spinning,
managed to remove it then used a vice to undo the bolt
Thinking of just epoxying it back in, best idea?

The exact same thing happened to me. I just tapped the insert and bolt back in to place and haven't had a problem. I think araldite would be your best bet. I read of it happening to someone, so they cut a few grooves into the insert and the hole it sits in to give the araldite something to bite into.

You could also use a timesert. Has a thread on the outside.
They are great things...

If you epoxy it back in - avoid putting Loctite on the bolt when you tighten it back down.

Yea i don't think it really needs loctite
Had tons of the yellow oem locktite crap!

I had the same problem,repaired with some epoxy.
But don't use the loctite as mentioned before,otherwise you can do the repair again.

Same problem used epoxy and never had a problem since and I have had the rail on and off a few times
