    Default CDTI Fuel filter removal tool

    Just thought i would pass this bit of info onto other CDTI owners

    While searching for a fuel filter removal tool i came across several ranging from £38 up to and over £70 then i came across this little beauty made by Blue Print for £22.99 plus postage and if anyone like myself has had the pleasure of changing one of these filters without the right tool you will know it can be a right pain to do and can break or crack the expensive filter housing if done incorrectly therefore i thought it was time to invest in a proper tool instead of using filter straps etc

    Anyway here`s the link to the one i bought once it arrives i have 2 cdti Vectra`s awaiting fuel filter changes so i will let you know how these perform and maybe even a wee how 2 with photos

    It requires a vice for use though so if you havn`t got one then it`s probably useless

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1507536564...84.m1497.l2649

    Hope this helps someone

    Not sure if you'll need this for the V6 CDTI as it's on a torx screw. It's an easy task without any special tools.

    Yep definatly don't need it for v6. I've changed mine loads just torx bit and small flat blade screwdriver is all that's needed.


    O and I use a syringe to put fill filter to the brim to aid in starting

    Sorry i should have been more specific in the title it`s for the 1.9`s and yes the filter can be removed without this tool but it runs a higher risk of damaging the plastic casing

    I was only trying to help but if it`s not for you then fair enough it`s only a suggestion take it or leave it

    Fair enough was more so if anyone new to the v6 new they didn't need the tool.

    As for the 1.9 itl prob make life a lot easier.
    So good find

    Thanks for that - looks a handy bit of kit - when I did mine last time I managed to hold the bottom half gently in a vice, and then used one of those rubber grip straps and undid it. I put copper grease on the thread so hopefully it will be easier next time. The other thing to watch are the connections where the fuel pipes push fit into the lid - they are easily damaged where the pipes clip into the housing.
    Would be a lot simpler unscrewing the top with this tool.
