    Default Service time...

    Hi,
    My 1.9 cdti (150) 05 is now due a service. Its done 70,000 miles. I was wondering if many on here would do this themselves, how easy is it to get to the service parts ??

    Thanks...

    Air and pollen filters take a few minutes each.
    Oil drain is easy, oil filter is a little awkward to get at; its at the lower rear of the engine on the passenger side. A 32mm socket is required, do not overtighten, 25nm.
    Diesel filter can be a bit more testing, there is a how 2.
    Then its the usual wheels off, check of brakes, steering, suspension, wheel bearings,tyres and tyre pressures. Brake fluid change if not done in previous 2 years, would be seriously considering getting the cam belt done soon.
    Enjoy!

    Fuel filter housing can break if you're not careful, car wont run then and you'll have to get a new one and if you dont screw the fuel filter ring back on squarely/tightly/properly -when you put the ignition on it pressurises and sprays diesel all over the engine bay, bonnet, windscreen etc!!
