    Default Fuel filter change!! service

    Service time next week and am going to change the fuel filter, but I hear you can have problems with car starting afterwards. Its a 2.0 DTI so what do you reckon I should do to give the car the easiest possible start.

    Fill the filter housing to brim with fresh fuel put top on and fill through hole until poor out. Tighten down. And then should start ok.
