AIR & FUEL FILTERS
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.
