Default changing the fuel filter on a 300tdi

Im going to change the fuel filter tomorrow on the landy as I have been told that I am getting 'searching' whilst i back off the power due to the filter being too dirty .

Do i have to do anything prior to removing the filter or do i remove it and put the old one back on ?

fill the new one with diesel before you fit it.

search this site for cleaning the sedementor, then do that as well.

Put the new one on, not the old one!
