Default Fuel Filter - Part Missing?

Afternoon All,

I have recently acquired a 106 and have noticed that the pipes to the fuel filter have been bypassed.

Upon asking the previous owner, he states something failed and thus the bypass.

Can anybody please advise what this something was? Was it the fuel pump?

Many Thanks
Ross

Jesus............. thats a bodge if i ever saw one!

Ok, not too much to go wrong in the filter housing unless it's cracked or something.
Get another filter housing ASAP, new filter and put it back together.
If any bit of debris gets sucked into the injectors, you'll have an expensive bill!

Yep, I reckon the filter was never changed and the fuel flow chambers in the housing are blocked.

Filter housing is heated by the engine and this helps the fuel flow in colder weather i would look at sorting it out to avoid issues when it does get colder

The part you see sticking out in pic is the outlet to the pump the fitting has been pushed into the pipe attached to the hand primer the inlet i think is at the rear of the housing so not visible in pic do a google search you should find a pic of the layout

Afternoon all,

I have been speaking to other regarding this issue and they have said an aftermarket inline diesel filter would work.

PETROL & DIESEL INLINE FUEL FILTER 8MM 5/16 - SIMPLE TO CLEAN | eBay

Can anybody offer any opinions on this?

Thanks
Ross

If it was me, I'd fix the bypass, put original Peugeot parts back in. Be worth it in long run rather then messing with aftermarket stuff.
