    change filter , fill filter housing with diesel

    fit top to housing , tighten screw

    crank car over for 10 seconds

    repeat the cranking till vehicle starts but only in blocks of 10 secs at a time


    there is no need to bleed it as it bleeds itself

    Unfortunately that is incorrect. Only the 1.9 has a self bleeding fuel system.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Mate only way I got mine going was taking screw out off filter an filling fuel filter through this hole until absolutely full.

    Then after a few cranks it will go.

    Failing that some carb cleaner straight into throttle body while cranking should start it

    The V6 cdti is self bleading if you change filter you only need special bleeding kit if you change fuel pump. Anything else is self bleading I have done it many times. If you remove filter put in new filter fill with diesel then just start car and let run for a few mins job done.

    As above, you need to top the filter up... and fill it through the bolt hole.

    Tip: when you're filling the bolt hole (firstly make sure the area is clean), use one hand to maintain a downward pressure on the filter top (keeps a seal with the filter housing). Keep that pressure on, then with the other hand replace and tighten the bolt until the bolt takes up the slack and you can let go.

    If you've not attempted to start the car before filling the filter in this way, it should start straight up. If you have attempted to start it, it can take a few goes. If it still won't start, remove the filter outlet pipe and pour diesel down it until full. Replace the pipe. Refil the fuel filter through the bolt hole and you should be good to go.
