Just wondered if anyone had changed a Euro 6 fuel filter - this is what mine looks like?

Shop4parts shows 3 options - the last one seems to be a complete body so I assume it's one of the first two. My guess might be it's the middle one because the cast housing seems to be in two parts so the seal seems to make sense. The front pipe is the usual clip type but the rear one seems different. There is also an electrical block connector on the top of the housing. I assume you have to remove the complete housing first to separate it?

I'm not likely to do it this year but just thinking ahead.

Excellent - thanks very much huck999 . Looks quite straightforward. Caption at 12:49 reads "starting phase of the motor turn (presumably ignition) on and off two or three times to charge the diesel filter". Looks like the top example is the correct filter.

I will have a look for some similar hose clamp pliers and post eventually.

Yep - just turns the pump on to charge the filter.

I'll not be bothering with mine until it's first service at 28,000 miles :giggle:
If there's a little drain plug under the filter housing it would pay to drain any water that may be in the bottom of the housing, ( diesel floats on water as you are aware) injectors and water don't like each other, but I'm not familiar with the filter housing. Just a thought .
