Default Diesel fuel filter: first attemt failed

Hi folks,

Yesterday, I spent about 4 hours for the regular maintenance of my 2010 model 308 1.6 HDI. Since it was the first time that I lied under this car, it took more than usual. My primary aim was to change oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter.

First of all, I must say that the maintenance of this car is way harder than 307 petrol, which is my other car. Anyway, I could change oil, oil filter, air filter but I couldn't replace the fuel filter. It is located in between the battery and the engine block and I think I need to remove the battery first. However, I couldn't figure out how to remove the battery. Before doing something wrong, I thought of getting some comments from you guys. Could you please shed some light?

Remove the top off the airbox. Filter can come out with just that off.

But I saw some pipes below the filter in between filter and battery? Will I just pull the filter upwards and than remove the pipes?

Smile Fuel filter

Hi Puglover, remove air ducts, it comes in two pieces. A 10mm pin holds the plastic plate at front bottom right as you look from the front. Slide this upwards with first piece of pipe. Second pipe is a push in fit into the top of air filter. First pull the pipe to the right as it is held on lug. Next remove turbo pipe from right hand side of turbo to maf sensor, take care not to snap plastic connector halfway along pipe. With these removed you will have access to fuel filter below where the pipes have been removed. On the left of filter there is a platic clip, lever it to left and slide the filter out upwards. Remove the two push on fuel pipes and sensor connector along with drain pipe at bottom. Pipes are simple push on type, push in the little square bit on connector to release pipe as you pull it off. Remove filter. The new one will probably have only one pipe connector, the other you have to slide off the old filter. It's on a square piece on side of filter, simply use a thin chisel or flat screwdriver and gently lever it away to the left. Push firmly into new filter making sure the two o rings are in place. Fit drain pipe and sensor into new filter then slide it down into holder. Push on both fuel pipes making sure they click in. I just pumped the plastic primer on mine until it went hard and it started first time. May be just fortunate, I don't know. If that doesn't work for some reason then ask on forum, Chopper will get back to you as he seems very knowledgable in these things. hope this helps.

... and second attempt has been successful As you said, I changed it without removing the battery, the same way as Zoony has described.

Many thanks.
