    Default Fuel filter

    Hi all, is there a "How to" on changing a fuel filter for a 150 cdti on here? I can't seem to find one and I'm having trouble working out how to do it. Any advice would be great thanks

    Or you could do it with the fuel filter in situ, but it is a little trickier to get the top off and tightened back up

    Sorry - thats not advisable.

    Tring to undo and then torque up the lid with the filter housing in its bracket is VERY likely to crack the filter housing.. Seen that happen many a time. Always remove the filter housing from the housing bracket, clamp in a vice or workmate and then undo.

    p.s. If you are local to Heathrow - and want a price for supplied and fitted change - ping me a note.

    Everybody has there way of doing it, I have done loads in the past (and am a fully qualified mechanic) and never cracked or damaged a housing. The only time i have removed one is when it was too tight to undo, but even then clamping it in a vise has its own risk of damaging the houising.
    As i say everyone has his/her own way..........

    If you are near Leeds I will do the filter change for you (hopefully without removing the housing!!!!!!)

    What ever works for you my friend

    With the filter housing still in the mount bracket on the bulk head - its held in that bracket by the plastic of the filter housing at the rear which slots into the groove on the bracket - so only one point on the filter housing takes all the pressure when you torque it up to the correct 25NM of torque. Removing it and clamping will at least spread the load over two areas. Further more if you use the correct tool - you have a jacket to put the housing in when you clamp it.

    Just cant see the point of not removing. Its easier to drain the diesel out once removed - easier to remove and refit the lid - and the only way you can get the corretc tool on it.

    That said - just my opinion of doing many many of these with vauxhall / saab, please take no offence

    Yip - the correct pliers .. ....

    Very cheap and off in seconds.

    Failing that - two small flat blade screwdrivers to hold in the clips.
