    NO NO lol, if its a car with a spanner then there has been a fault which is not active OR if its a oil can with a spanner then its a service. Neither of them mean the fuel filter needs replaced.

    the manual states there fuel filter housing will collect water if the car is used on short runs a lot,
    the spanner through car sign will come up it the filter housing sensor reads that its collected water in it and will need draining!
    according to haynes you should drain the fuel filter housing at (I think) 18000mile intervals
    i drained mine the other week and the light hasn't gone out
    the light stayed on for about 5 mins and went out, read on here it could be glow plugs so checked them with a multi meter and low and behold 2 of them were shot so replaced them and the light lit for 5 mins from time to time so changed the other 2 and light now goes straight out once car starts but still hasn't left the memory after 2 weeks of driving it, so wondering what else could cause the light to come on and go straight out once started?

    As said above for the service, there's a oil can with a spanner that comes on and that can be reset by holding the trip meter down while turning the ignition on and keep holding the trip meter button until it flashes with service and a new mileage! but only do this once you have serviced your car yourself (don't go being naughty now )

    As the manual states if the car with spanner comes on with ignition and goes off when the car is started there is nothing to worry about. It just means there has been a hiccup somewhere and the fault is'nt active.
