Yes! Simply remove the four 8mm bolts and move the semi-circle part towards the front of the car. Unclip the green electrical clip & remove both diesel pipes by gently pushing the white parts in.
Use a 27mm socket (preferably single hex) to unscrew the filter housing & lift out. The filter then pulls straight off.
Refitting is reverse procedure, but you need to use a hand pump connected to the bleed valve on top of the filter housing to lift the diesel back up to the filter.
