    Default 1.9 CDTi - changing fuel filter

    Haynes manual says a special tool is needed or you need to make something to open the housing. Do people just go buy the tool? any tips?

    when you've removed the canister hold it gently in a vise , that will allow you to grasp it with both hands to undo it.

    they can be tight and you really could do with a vise to hold it steady, any good friends or neighbours ?.
