    Can anyone help please.
    arrived home with diesel leak from top of filter housing

    I read on here a while back about a conversion for the fuel filter on Ducato's.
    I think it was to replace the filter with a skrew on type in place of the crap that Fiat fit.
    if anyone knows what part it is and part number . It would be a great help.

    thanks in advance

    Mel

    mine leaked after a service but not until around 3 months after we had a new filter fitted all done correctly by the garage however that also leaked the garage contacted fiat and was told sometimes the seal wont reseal of these plastic filters and the best way is a new housing unit go to ebay get a complete housing for around 100 quid its easy to fit yourself

    Very wise, I have but paid £89 :cry:

    Easy to swap in a few minutes with no tools if you have a right hand drive vehicle.

    EDIT and have read my guides

    EDIT EDIT "A" class is probably a different story

    EDIT EDIT EDIT mine is always in the van and available to anyone on the road if they need it.

    Mine is Lefthand drive is that a problem.
    the filter is under the bonnet on the same side as the steering.
    its an A class .
    it does look a bit tight in there.

    Parked next to a nice couple last night in an IH van conversion whose van was stinking of diesel. Yes, the dreaded fuel filter. AA man called, who tightened it up a bit more and recommended a local garage for a better fix.
