My filter needs doing and I'd rather do it myself, but I've heard from a few in the garage trade that it can be a nightmare getting it bled afterwards and restarted, as there is no built in hand bleeding pump. Ford tend to use a handheld air-driven primer AFAIK, and I've heard of some garages reduced to trying to tow start after a filter change.
I've also heard you can prime it by switching the ignition on to II and off 7 or 8 times without starting, to prime using the fuel pump. Has anyone tried this method with any success?? Don't want a non-starter on my drive.
