    might be a bit of a silly question but its needs done, thanks for any help lads.

    in all honesty i wouldnt bother depressurising the system

    im fairly sure most ppl just change the filter without touching the rest of the system

    see what other ppl have to say though.....or maybe try a search

    I'd only bother depressurising the system if the ignition's been switched on within the last few hours. But I wouldn't remove the relay either way.

    Is there black plastic cap (like a large tyre valve cap) on the fuel rail? (there usually is . Undo that and press the middle of the valve down - a small amount of fuel will run out, so you may need a rag handy to catch the dribblage
