hi all,

 

i will be replacing the fuel filter on my 2.0 hdi 2005 model this week, and i was wondering is there any kind of priming i need to do before i start it up?

 

i have the fuel filter housing with the electrical connector on the top

 

thanks in advance

just done one.

 

no priming needed , 

best to remove the complete housing , only 2 bolts.

the top could be tight to undo , I put it in the vice loosely and use a oil filter removal tool.

put some grease on the new seal and thread.

the seal should be fitted so that the grooved side is facing upwards

the top should only be hand tight , there  are max and min markings , albeit faint , on the housing which line up with the tab on the top

 

good luck.

thanks for the reply,

 

it sounds pretty easy then, shouldn't take too long at all. i did have a lot of confusion over what fuel system it has but i believe i have the right filter,

 

will keep this updated when i do it

whether it's  Bosch or Siemens is confusing , and the factors tend to list both.

 

I've never come across a pic 2.0 hdi fitted with a Bosch 

 

With my recent filter purchase GSF had the two part numbers mixed up

and I ended up with the wrong one , very helpful.

on what i believe is the fuel rail it has a bosch sticker on it and i do have a bosch filter from euro car parts, but it's very confusing but it looks to be the right size.

 

i really hope it is the correct filter though but before i do anything i will remove the cover and check the size of it and if it matches the current filter then i will fit it.
