    yeah fairly simple

    one torx screw on the top undo it

    gently lift the top of the housing out of the way it can be a bit fiddly but it is possible

    remove old filter

    put in new one

    fill with clean diesel

    replace housing o ring that sits in the groove

    screw top back on

    job done

    If its anything like the fuel filter on the DTi, It's technically easy (couple of bolts and a clip or two) but s**t scary if you let air into the fuel lines as the car wont start afterwards.

    Not sure if the cdti engine suffers the same issue though

    I have a suspicion that it self bleeds as i've just done mine and it seemed to start too easy after air got in! Failing that do it at the top of a hill and bump it down to pull the fuel through maybe?

    just fill it with diesel till most of the filter is covered

    it may start and stall a couple of times while cranking it but it will bleed itself in the end and then roberts your mothers brother

    As above - fill it up and when you start it and it catches give it some beans for ten seconds or so so that any air in the lines doesn't stall the engine...
