Default Retro fitting a fuel filter housing with primer pump

Hi,
I have a 2005 v50 2.0d 136bhp with air bubbles im the fuel lines,
Im thinking of completely removing the original volvo housing and hoses and retro fitting a housing with a built in primer pump (plunger type) like in the attached picture.

My only concern is what does the electrical connection on the top of the original volvo housing do ?
And can i leave it unplugged or bypass it without any problem?

Im wanting to use a metal canister type filter coupled with hose and jubilee clips instead of the troublesome original push fitting hose connections.

Regards.

Can't answer that question however the Peugeot iteration of this same engine has the hand primer built into the fuel line... might be worth fitting that.

Its the push connections for fuel in and out on that housing which I believe is drawing in air aswell as the housing itself.

A primer would just be a bonus but im mainly trying to resolve the air being drawn in.

Thanks.

I just put in an extra "O" ring in the push fit connections. It was enough to tighten up the seal and stop the air leak.

Are you sure it is the fittings? Some others have found a cracked housing or the seal under the lid?
