    Unhappy 04 astra cdti not starting after filter change

    Hi my brothers 04 astra cdti will no longer start, he changed the fuel filter it started and ran for about 50 miles then would not start he checked the filter again and the small spring was bent while trying to straighten he dropped it and lost it, now the car will not start what does the spring do? he took it to vauxhall and put it on the computer showed many faults he had to get a new key programmed now only showing 1 fault which was polos barametric pressure sensor not plausible with boost pressure the vauxhall mechanic couldnt give much light on the fault saying he was new to using the computer still waiting for a reply but thought i would try here,also does the 04 cdti have a in tank pump as all i can see under the seat is 2 wires for the fuel guage

    cheers for any help

    i did that once, i lost the spring and it wouldnt start, so had to replace the filter housing top from a scrappers.
    I think the sping is something that acts like a valve to let diesel thro.
    worked fine after replacing filter top

    get to a scrap yard and see if you can find this spring and replace it?
