Question Fuel filter on Td4.

Hi, I am a new comer to the land rover world. I have a 2003(Sept) Td4, I have successfully changed the air filter, oil filter with oil change but cannot find the fuel filter. The one Paddock sent me is a screw on canister type. I had a look under the rear wheel arch but I think that is only the pump, couldn't see anything that looked like the filter I was sent.
Have I missed something or been sent the wrong filter? I would be very grateful for any help.

Default Re: Fuel filter on Td4.

Hi Jerry,
The fuel filter is located below the electrics box, half way between the battery and the bulkhead on the passenger side, under the bonnet. It is very difficult to see how it all fits, but it has a central screw which holds the plastic filter housing/mounting in place. Find this screw (which is a small self tapper) and be prepared to loose it, or use a magnetic screw driver. Then lift the plastic housing up and away, (towards the engine) be ready with loads of rags to catch the diesel fuel when you disconnect the pipes. There is an earth wire attached to the housing also. (anti interference, I think) It is quite a fiddle getting it back again, as it has two locating lugs on the back of the plastic housing/mounting.
Hope this helps!
Martin

Hi Jerry and Martin,

I have a MY01 Td4 myself and since last year I have a fuelfilter in my garage as well, I know the location of it but after I saw the set-up I got scared to start changing it, so it's still in the garage . What I wanted to ask is, IF I get to it to change it and I manage to do so, how gets the filter filled with fuel as I can't see a device to pump up the fuel? Or is it just by cranking the engine ? If eys, how long could it take ?
(My question because I understand it is not the best of situation for a diesel engine to run dry ??)
Thanks and pse Jerry, how did it work out ??

hi willow it can be done just by cranking it but it takes a while and it doesnt like it. there should be a manual pump on it that looks like a piece of bulging rubber usually at the top of it. good luck!

Hello Will, I think my filter is a different type to yours, this is why I had a bit of trouble.I have the correct one being sent to me, so all should be ok now.

Hi all,

This is the filter sitting in my garage, as far as I can see this should be the correct one.

HI Willo,
Yes! Thats the one that sits under the electrics box, (between the battery and the bulkhead) remember to find the little screw on the plastic filter holder and unscrew it first. (it is in the middle of the plastic housing and it is easily lost) Then lift and remove the whole lot to one side and disconnect the fuel lines. A workshop manual will help you a lot.
Regards,
Martin

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your reply, at least now I can be sure it's the correct one. As in the meantime I found out this should be replaced after 5 years I think I will have to grab my courage together and start going at it one day or another. Thanks again and take care.

Hi Will and Martin, the filter in Wills photo is of the one I was sent first,which for my September 2003 Td4 Serengeti 5dr was the wrong one. The one for my version fits under the rear wheel arch, alongside the fuel pump and sedimentor. Paddocks have now sent the correct one which I am in the process of changing.

Will I've sent an attatchment which is from a land rover workshop manual, it shows how to do yours.
