    Default Fuel Filter Removal

    I had my 1.9 cdti 150 2008 in for a fuel filter change, he removed the pipe and power connector then tried to lift the can out of the cage and try as much as he did would not come out, he said i would have to go back as he would have to remove the cage from the body, is there an easier way to release it myself without going the removing the cage way.

    no need to remove the housing just take the long torque bolt out off the top of the housing slide the lid back and lift the old filter out of the cup , replace the seals and filter put the lid back on and tighten

    I have seen the how2 but doesn't mention how to remove a tight can from the cage and i don't really want to go the tap it with a screwdriver as i would probably damage it, would squirting something like WD 40 down the sides work

    Hand on the underside of the housing and pressure upwards and it will come. Some are tight. What ever you do make sure you remove it before trying to remove the lid!! Very easy to remove the lid with correct tool or filter wrench pliers.

    As said above, get your hand on the underside and push upwards. It might require some wiggle left and right as well. After removal, you can use the proper tool to unscrew the lid or hold it with your leg against wall and knock it round with wood and hammer to open the lid.

    That's for a 2.0 DTi IIRC. The CDTi is different.
