Fuel filters cost less than a tenner, and it’s a simple job taking less than 5 minutes to complete.
So let’s have a look how you do it.
Removing the fuel filter
The fuel filter is located on bulk head, to left hand side of the engine. (see pic above)
1: Start by cleaning the area around the filter head.
2: Place a container beneath the fuel filter to catch any spillage.
3: Loosen the bleed screw (shown in the photo) using a 10mm spanner
4: Unscrew the drain tap on the bottom of the filter until the fuel starts coming out into your the container.
5: Once all the fuel is drained from the filter, unscrew the whole filter assembly.
Fitting the new fuel filter
7: Put a small amount of fuel around the rubber seal to lubricate it.
8: Screw the new filter onto the filter head and tighten by hand.
10: Tighten the bleed screw.
11: You can now crank the engine until fuel is drawn through the system and the engine starts.
