Default Changing The Fuel Filter CDTi

Just in case anyone else is unsure of changing the fuel filter on the CDTi hope this will help.
You will need some rags and a 8mm ratchet or ring spanner
Locate the fuel filter just in front of the battery case Fig 1
1

Fig 2 take note of the two fuel lines and the electric wire line
2

Fig 3/3a unplug the fuel lines be ready to use the rags in case of a little spillage of diesel
3

3a


Fig 4/5 shows the fuel lines disconnected and the rags under them in case of diesel spill you should not get much so no need to worry.
4

5

Fig 6/7 You can now unclip the electric sensor plug, there is a little tag to tease up it then pulls out.
6

7


Fig 8/9 Once the fuel lines & sensor wire have been disconnected you can use the 8mm ratchet spanner to loosen the bolt which tightens the clamp round the fuel filter once slackened off enough the filter will lift up free from the clamp. If you are on your own and the top is tight lift a little to clear battery, then re-tighten you can then use some rags over the top to undo the top a little before completely removing.
8

9


Fig 10 now the fuel filter is free from the clamp you can unscrew the filter from the low pressure pump, do this in an upright position as the filter still holds a fair bit of diesel.
10

Fig 11/12/ If the filter as been tightened up by a gorilla then you may have to use a vice, if you do not have one put it back on the car pushed half way down and re-clamp it tight and use that as a vice.
11

12

Fig 13 shows the rubber seal always use one on the new filter, smear a little diesel fuel on the seal, if your filter does not come with one then use the one you have just taken off.
13

Fig 14 fir the new filter hand tight then give it another 1/4 turn.
14


Once you have removed the old filter the diesel which is still in it must be discarded safely, the new filter can be half filled with clean diesel fuel if you have some, this is not really necessary, you have to prime the filter by turning ignition to II and off a few times to prime the filter fully, the car may not start right away don't worry the car may need to be turned over a few more time before she fires up. Fig 15
15

All you need to do now is switch the ignition to No II wait 15 seconds turn off then start engine once started check that the fuel filter and its fittings are all leak free job done cheers Arctic.

PS hope this can be understood as i have patched different photos together to re-instate the thread, due to the PB stealing the originals.

Great pics as usual Steve.

I clean the pipe connections before disconnecting them with a brush and the hoover then put the open pipe ends into small plastic bags to ensure no contamination enters the system. For the same reason I don't pour fuel into the new filter.

Probably over the top but I think contamination getting to the HP side along with miss-fueling are the two common causes of injector and HP pump failures.

For anyone doing this make sure the filter you get hasn't got a bleed valve at the bottom. My last one did and i had to bend the bracket slighty that it sits on otherwise it stuck up too far.
