    Fuel filter renewal.

    Here's how Ah did it;)

    The filter...

    [​IMG]

    Furst Ah slackened the bleed screw on top of the housing...

    [​IMG]

    then using a filter removal tool (only because ah can't get enough grip!)....

    [​IMG]

    Ah removed the filter....

    [​IMG]

    The new filter...

    [​IMG]

    using some fresh diesel, ah smeared it around the rubber seals...

    [​IMG]

    and checking to see if there was anything left from the old filter (which there was!)....

    [​IMG]

    before sticking the new filter on only hand tight....

    [​IMG]

    As the bleed screw was already open, (Might be an idea to replace the copper washer on the bleed screw at this point) it was just a case of pumping the fuel pump lever until no more air bubbles came out of the bleed screw...

    [​IMG]

    and closing the bleed screw...

    [​IMG]

    That's it, job done ;):D

    Just a wee note to say that ah prefer to pump the fuel through mesel' instead of filling the filter with fuel before fitting. At least ah know it's clean fuel then;):D
