    Car was serviced yesterday, now pissing diesel everywhere!!

    Hey guys,

    Can someone confirm that this is the fuel filter? It is completely wet, not sure where the source of the leak is other than the tubing terminated by the blue clips...

    damn, i cant attach the photos? basically its the black housing at the back of the engine bay, in the centre.

    I suspect it might be one of the clips causing the leak, did feel a click when i pushed it. However I want to be sure.. How do you remove the filter from the housing? when i disconnected the blue clips i was unable to get the fiter out, its somehow attached to the housing but couldnt figure out where..

    Is there a howto guide anywhere?

    Cheers

    With comments like that - i would expect any future threads to follow the same course


    We all have lives outside of here and just because you didnt receive a reply doesnt mean the community is unhelpful!

    I know Id rather no reply than a shedful of useless replies which you often get on a lot of other forums.


    Glad you got the problem resolved but drop the attitude or you'll likely be up shit creek next time you have a problem.
