    Fuel Filter replacement 1.7 dti

    Hi,

    Going to have a go myself but unsure of how to empty the filter I understand the screw at the bottom but how do you get it off and where does the fuel spill out from?

    Got haynes but it dont make sense to me?

    Any diagrams to help me along..

    Cheers Paul

    Basically you undo the torx nut on the top, take old filter out, place cup under assembly and theres a little thumb screw to undo and just drain it until you see diesel, install new filter and put top back on, remember to change seals also.

    Hi skynet,

    That would just be a wiring harness like the one on my old Astra - it shouldn't leak any fuel out of there (if it does something's wrong).

    And I think you may want to top the new filter up with diesel before doing it up and trying to start up, to reduce the amount of air it has to remove from the system before it fires up...

    Cheers, Paul

    Its not entirely necessary on these cars i dont think, mine always fires up first thing and if i just leave it ticking over it sorts itself out.
