    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default Changed the fuel filter this morning

    My fuel pump has been making a few groaning noises recently, so I decided it was probably time to replace the fuel filter on my 04 1.8 petrol. It has been on since new and has now done 153,000 miles - so can;t really complain.

    £6.29 from Halfords on the trade card.

    Anyway, as I hear that the connectors are easily damaged, I decided to make it easier for myself.

    After piercing the dirty side of the filter metal body with a small nail and collecting the lost fuel, I went about cutting the filter inlet and outlet stub tubes off close to the main body.

    Then the stub can be easily removed from the connectors without too much difficulty and you can also release the tabs much easier.

    All in all, not difficult and no damage done to anything else.

    Having access to a pit really helps.

    The occasional groaning noise has not been heard since. Can't say that the car goes any better though.
