    Quite easy.
    Disconnect both fuel hoses (small screwdriver) and 1 elec plug.
    Lift housing from car.
    Unscrew top.
    Lift out filter.
    Clean inside of housing with a lint free cloth.
    Replace filter, fill housing with diesel.
    Very important to fit a new seals
    When fitting the bolt its only tightened to 6Nm
    Refit to car.
    Vx recommend using a pump to draw fuel through as the diesel pump does not like running dry. Also if it doesn't start first time make sure you leave a few minutes between starts if you spend a long time cranking the engine as the starter can overheat. Its supposed to be self-bleeding

    But before replacing the bolt into the top fill it up with diesel there too (helps to alleviate air running through the pump)

    Good luck
