Morning all,
Gave the car a much needed service at the weekend and wanted to chnage the Diesel Fuel filter (2.0HDi).
Now there is a tricky little bugger tucked away in there!  Confused
Can anybody here tell me how to open the filter housing? Blimey, that really looks like something from a mensa test Laughing  

Help appreciated.

Cheers.

Daz

Hi

remove the two in / out pipes then a 27 mm socket is required undo anti clockwise, with filter top removed , drain and clean bowl , then new filter / seal / re tighten , then squeeze hand pump until hard , then undo bleed screw on top of housing , air will escape , so repeat until diesel comes out of bleed screw.

start car and hold on revs at about 2500 for a couple of secs

Hi Crow,

Thanks for the prompt reply.
When I first read it I thought whats he on about Then went and had another look at the filter assembly. I must be going bloody senile! You know what, I spent must have been over half an hour looking at the damned thing on Saturday trying to work out how the top comes off, and I just couldn't see the wood for the trees. Just had another squint, and low and behold it has miraculously grown a place where one can give it a good heave-ho with a socket. The nut head wasn't there on Saturday! You sure you didn't seak in over the weekend and fit one while I wasn't looking  Shocked  Laughing  

When I look now, I don't understand how I could've not seen it. Embarassed

Thanks again for pointing me right, Crow.


Cheers.

Hi

are you really a pilot ??? im worried , please post who you fly for and im staying clear  Very Happy

just remember to bleed filter bowl like i explained , then hold on revs first time you start . getting air in these seimens models can be a pain and take a while to clear   Sad

Oh, and I've booked an appointment with my optician!  Wink

I honestly can't believe that I couldn't see what is so bloody obvious, the first time I looked at it.

Thanks for the advice Crow, I'll give it a blast next weekend, when I can afford to bugger it up and call a garage Razz

Yep it needs a good steady pull, not a big yank, more a progressive increase in pull untill it starts to move, then just coax it further.
Easy when you actually get on the job.
Done mine in about 10 mins.
Good luck.  Rolling Eyes
