1997 VW Passat - Fuel Filter problems - Tedster

tried to change the fuel filter on my 1997 vw passat tdi 90. Removed the pipes from the top and the two small screws from another. The new filter which doesnt come with the connections and it appears as though the top of the old filter seperates and is screwed into the new filter.However there is no screw/bolt allowing for its removal? Help please??

Not sure but sounds like you need to unscrew the filter from the filter head, hold the part with the pipe connections in a vice if possible or in hand and unscrew the filter.

Fill the new filter with diesel and screw back onto the filter head and refit the pipes. start and run engine to clear any air in the system.

hope this helps
