03 2.0 diesel filter change - billyon
i changed diesel filter on 2.0d x-type, but could not find any hand primer near filter housing or surrounding area, tried leaving the ignition on,(thinking it might be an electric pump)then wound the engine over 5or 6 times but no sign of engine even trying to start. in the end i gave up and fitted the original filter which i had kept upright and clean, as it was still full of fuel the car started after 10 seconds and has been running ok. can anyone give me some advice on how to successfully changethe fuel filter?
