  1. Fuel Filter On 1.8 Tdci

    A bit late on this one but it may help someone. The last time I changed mine I messed about for ages trying to get it bled again but this time it was no problem ,fired and ran first time. After replacing the filter leave the bleed screw on top of the housing open and both fuel line connectors off. Using a syringe or something like to fill the filter housing from the OUTLET opening until it flows out of the bleed nipple .It takes a surprising amount. Now fill inlet line and connect to filter housing. The outlet line is held in place with several clips,pull it free and and bring it under the inter cooler pipe so you can hold the fuel line high enough to run all the air bubbles to the open end. Fill the line with the syringe until it overflows then blank the end (you should get some blanking plugs with filter) Now reroute outlet line under inter cooler pipe remove blank and connect to filter housing. It sounds complicated but it's not really it only takes a few minutes but it worked great for me.
