    unscrew top of filter housing without disconnecting pipes, move top to side. replace filter and both seals, replace lide. 2.0 DTi is self priming so just keep trying to start it in 10second bursts and it'll eventually start again once air is out. Not sure about 1.7DTi being self priming

    on my 1.7 cdti mk5 its the same type of set up and mine would not start for nothing. Took the top back off filled up the filter housing and refit the top and fired no bother then. thats what i will be doing everytime i do it from now on.

    It's at the back of the engine in front of the firewall, slightly to the right if I remember correctly. A cylindrical housing with 2 pipes coming out of it. 1 metal, 1 flexibile. It has a single hex type screw in the centre of it.

    You can top the housing up with diesel after you've put new filter in which will help. I was too lazy and too cheap to get a container and some diesel so I just tried it anyways and it did eventually start.

    If you still need help locating it, I can take a photo tomorrow for you if you want.

    the Haynes manual mentions draining water out the bottom of the filter housing but I couldn't figure out how to do this easily so didn't bother lol.

    Best way to do this is to do as people say about changing the filter itself and then before you start it again put your foot down to the floor on the accellerator and then start the car.. keep it at 4,000 revs or more for about 10-20secs then drop it to 3,000 and hold it there for a minute or so.. This just makes the fuel pump spoon fuel through the system.

    This trick was recommended to me a vauxhall technician!
