Service Due
« on: February 19, 2021, 06:20:26 PM »
So my service is due. I’m confident I can carry out most of the filters. The only one I’m anxious about is the fuel filter. Are there any “how-to” guides please?

Any tips in advance would also be welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Just got to fill it up before u plug it back in I think
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

Nothing to worry about with fuel filter just swap it over and cycle ignition a few times to run the in tank lift pump to prime system. It may splitter and cut out when starting first time but it will soon settle down.

I’ve seen videos where you need to bleed it first etc?

Should I drain what’s in there too, or just swap in the new filter?

If it has a bleed nipple on the filter housing (not familiar with the mark3 type) some do like my old Alfa Romeo then crack bleed and cycle ignition. If not then just do 4 or 5 ignition cycles to fill it.

I normally drain the filter housing if it has a water drain on the bottom.
