Tdci Fuel Filter

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I bought my first diesel back in October, a Focus Titanium 1.8 TDCI without a DPF.

My question is, where is the fuel filter, and how do I change it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Brian

The first picture is the location on a 1.6, they have no pictures in the Haynes for a 1.8 but describe it as in the same location and the need to remove the air cleaner for access, so I'd assume that it's further forward towards the air box than on a 1.6.

Thanks for the replys, I actually found a guide on a Mondeo site.

Removing seems fine, but replacing without air leaks seems a another story.

the air leaks is easy - providing you assemble it correctly with a new seal. its priming the system that can be a pain. i found using a syringe to inject fuel is an easy way to purge the air from the filter housing.
