The time has come for me to have a crack at changing the diesel filter on my 2014 mk3 1.6tdci, I've  been reading up on the procedure and it looks simple enough(I've heard these engines can be a nightmare to get started after a filter change) so I  have decided to invest in a priming hand pump. (would 10mm be ok? 

I've been looking at filers to order and eurocarparts list it as a filter insert

But when  I've  been looking on eBay I have come across ones with a full housing on them. 

 

Here's a pic of my engine, if someone could point me In the right direction that would be brill :)

You don’t need to buy the one with the housing just buy the filter . It’s easy enough to change the filter but like you said a pig to get started . 

I went in blind and couldn’t start mine , had to get a friend mechanic who had a priming pump.
