AIR & FUEL FIL­TERS

Car Mechanics (UK) - - 2011 Jaguar XF 2.2D -

12 RE­NEW AIR FIL­TER

The air fil­ter is lo­cated in­side a plas­tic hous­ing in the near­side front of the en­gine bay. Undo seven Torx T20 screws to re­move the top cover – lift this up to ex­tract the old air fil­ter and fit the new one. Re­move any de­bris from in­side the air fil­ter hous­ing be­fore fit­ting the new fil­ter.

13 EN­GINE TOP COVER

The fuel fil­ter should be re­placed ev­ery two years. It can be re­newed from un­der the bonnet. First, prise off the en­gine’s top cover, which is clipped in po­si­tion on the top. You will now be able to see the fuel fil­ter on the near­side of the en­gine.

14 FUEL FIL­TER PIPES

Undo three 6mm Allen key bolts that se­cure the fil­ter in po­si­tion. De­tach the four fuel pipes from the top of the fil­ter, as well as an elec­tri­cal plug at the top and an­other one at the bot­tom. Lift up the fil­ter a lit­tle to ac­cess the lower elec­tri­cal plug.

15 RE­MOVE OLD FUEL FIL­TER

Ex­tract the old fuel fil­ter and check it’s iden­ti­cal to the new one. Re­move the short drain pipe from the old fuel fil­ter and trans­fer it to the new one. Lower the fil­ter into po­si­tion, re­con­nect the elec­tri­cal plugs and re­fit the 6mm Allen key bolts and the four fuel pipes.

16 PRIME THE FUEL FIL­TER

The new fuel fil­ter needs to be primed be­fore run­ning the en­gine. Use a hand pump to draw fuel into the new fuel fil­ter. This can take sev­eral at­tempts, so it’s worth­while test-start­ing the en­gine a few times after­wards to make sure there are no air locks.
