    copied this from other posts a bit of a compliation....

    the CDTi's use a screwtop canister.. the screw clamp is very tight and needs big grips to undo it.. pull up the canister and remove the wiring plug. remove the two lines... take the canister to the bench.. i use a vice to gently hold the body while using some 18" grips to undo the ring.. replace the filter and the seal.. replace the lid after priming as much as you can with injector cleaner.. let it soak it right up and fill as high as you can.. replace the lid and do the screw clip up to a firm nip.. reinstall into the car. replace fuel lines and wiring.. the car should fire up and bleed itself..


    I can't recall the type of method used on the Vecs but it will be either, a squeeze together two flats and pull up type (older design) or more likely, colour coded clips that push through the bottom part of the pipe and hold it onto the tube of the filter. So, looking at the pipes where they fit onto the filter, look for the coloured 'rectangle', on the other side of the pipe from the coloured rectangle will be the two ends of this coloured clip. Using both forefingers push these two ends inwards towards each other and then push the clip out (pushing towards the rectangle) if you see what I mean, then the clip will slide out and you can then pull the pipe off. Don't worry about getting them on the wrong tubes when replacing, because you can't, the colour coding and the fact that they are all different sizes keeps you right (There is 1x fuel delivery, 1x fuel outlet and 1x fuel leak off/return). I can't think of any other way to explain it. This paragraph may become clear when you look at the pipes. HTH

    u dont need to remove it from craddle to remove pipes just press in the two release levers on the pipe connectors undo the torques bolt in the top lift of top remove filter change all seals and o rings fit new filter fill filter housing with fuel refit top plug in pipes and start car hold throttle open for a while just to expel any air . if u dont fill the filter with fuel you may have problems getting it to start as it does not have a primer

    Pretty much as above, with the exception that the fuel cannister is self priming. You'd need to turn the ignition on and off about 3 times to allow the fuel pump to push enough diesel to fill the cannister.

    Rough Steps:

    Remove the two top fuel lines from the housing using either the correct pliers, or two flat blade screwdrivers.. you need to press the blue taps in and then pull the pipes out.

    Remove the electrical connection at the top.

    Put your hand underneath the housing and push up - it will pop out of the bracket. You must do this, do not undo or tighten in the bracket as you run the risk of cracking the filter housing.

    Once poped up - remove the electrical connection underneath.

    Now you can take the filter housing out the car.

    Clamp the housing in a vice or workmate.

    Using either the correct tool (as I have shown above) or a pair of oil filter pliers - undo the screw top.

    Remove old filter and replace with new using new seals.

    Once seals are in the correct place - screw down the lid and tighten to 25NM.

    Refit to car as a reverse of the above.

    Turn the ign on to position 2 for 5 seconds then off then repeat for 3 times

    Fire the car up.

    HTH

    As above I did mine on Wednesday, using the How2 on this site. Being properly prepared it's a 30min job. Hardest thing was getting the ring off. I viced the canister in a g clamp and hit one of the little "fins" on it with a hammer via a block of soft wood. Simples. If I can do it anyone can!

    Good luck

    Ditto - I did mine last week but used a filter chain to undo the ring. I learned from a mistake as I didn't screw the ring back tight enough when I reasssembled it - so ended up with diesel pouring down my drive!! LOL.

    I did mine couple of weeks ago, filter wrench works a treat getting top off housing. I filled housing with diesel before putting filter in, fired car up and ran for 30 seconds at about 2000rpm. Didn't want to risk getting air in system if it didn't self prime properly.
