Missing a bolt for the diesel filter bracket
« on: November 27, 2012, 11:26:36 PM »
I've had my car in parts today to try to solve a number of issues, and I notice that the garage hasn't fitted the new diesel filter properly at the last service.

The filter is in the bracket, but there's no bolt holding so its hanging on the pipes.

Can anyone tell me what type and size of bolt I need to get? is it a normal thread or self tapping?

It is a self tapping thread with a torx head, it's not uncommon for the plastic bracket to break if you try to remove filter without the bracket.
The filter and bracket is easily removed by pressing on the button at the back of the bracket and sliding the whole bracket and filter upwards after removing the pipes.

Thanks, that's just the info I needed. I'm sure I have a suitable self tapper in the garage somewhere.
