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.

ive done my filter 3 times since i got my car...1st time consisted of me not having a car for 3 days because i didnt bleed the system and there was an airlock...got to a point where the battery had a few hits left on it before it died completely.

 

2nd time i brimmed the fuel filter. when it went to stall i floored the pedal and it stayed alive!!!! muhahahaha

 

3rd time...muggins didnt put the rubber seal on correctly so it took loads of air in...Had to walk 2 miles to local fuel station with a jerry can...still couldnt get the sod started or primed, i called RAC gave them a story of having my filter changed at a garage and i just found a pipe loose. He got his syphon out and got it going for me :)...

 

in the end i bought http://www.toolbox.c...ming-7464-65871 - exact same as what RAC carry.
