    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.
