    Or to the left, depends on where you live

    As for the fuel treatment...nothing damages a DTi

    dont stick fuel treatment in the filter housing , that would just mean getting a really concentrated treatment for the first few miles

    your better off filling the housing with pure clean diesel a,d adding the treatment to a full tank of fuel

    look at engine from the front of the car , at either the back left or right attached to the bulkhead will be a round plastic thing with 2 plastic pipes going to it , it also has an electrical connection going to it and on the top is a torx screw

    if you undo the scre and remove it you can then lift the top of the filter housing off ,
    then remove the filter elemn from inside ( you will spill some diesel here )

    put new element in , replace lost diesel , replace filter housing top , retighten torx screw


    then turn the car over till it starts

    if it cuts out keep trying it as there could be some air in the system


    bobs your uncle , one changed fuel filter

    Don't forget to replace the rubber washers that come with the new filter.

    Buy yourself a syringe, it makes filling the filter housing so much easier and keep your foot to the floor for re-starting
