the dealers will charge you over 100 for a filter replacement. the filter should cost around £20 for the genuine ford one and it can be done in less than half an hour so i would go to a cheaper garage to get it replaced or change it yourself.

 

make sure that you or the garage fills the filter housing to the brim with diesel and you shouldnt have any issues starting it up

 

 

I wonder if it would be cheaper to just go for a full service. My car will be due for one this coming summer. Maybe I should book it in early as I am certain the fuel filter will be changed on a full service.

Rang my local Ford dealer this morning, he thinks it is fuel filter, not covered under platinum warranty. He is going to phone me with prices.

 

What is a reasonable charge for a replacement fuel filter on a 1.8tdci?

Can't believe I am reading this but my Ford Platinum warranty runs out in about 125 miles. Does anyone think this would be covered by warranty?

It could be an injector problem? there's been a few threads about this for the injectors ending with the batch number 3

Thank for your post. How can I check which injectors batch I have?

take that pipe off and inspect it for cracks, high possibility it will just be that

Thanks, ok so it is not sounding like anything too serious.

Other than this, car has been perfect, very pleased with it.
