    Default fuel filter dripping cdti

    Hi
    Hoping someone can help...

    when the engines running i've noticed steady dripping of diesel from the fuel filter - what do I need to tighten to stop this? i think its coming from the top

    Check the push in fuel pipes - one on the top and another slightly lower - if its not one of them it could be the lid itself - check that the large tightening ring is tightly screwed down. There is a large rubber sealing ring insde there that should be compressed by the lid against the main body by tightening the locking ring. The filter bodies have also been known to split and leak so check carefully.

    Have you recently changed the filter?

    When I did mine leaked with the new gasket fitted, put the old gasket back in and its fine, quite tough to do up tight though!
