My car has the Siemens diesel pump so I'm pretty sure it will have the Siemens style fuel filter as well. Tried to replace the filter but cannot get the top of the housing to unscrew. Even tried an oil filter removal strap but it won't budge. Checked in the Haynes manual and they said that while unscrewing the top is possible, they have found that usually the filter housing gets damaged removingthe filter,

Is there a 'secret' to to getting the top off or am I going to have to buy a new filter housing ?

I just use a big screwdriver on the raise ribs of the cap and give it some with a hammer :)

Ours get opened regularly though so not that tight if its been there a while it can break when you force it so you might need a whole housing at the ready just incase :)

I thought the ring was part of the top section until I saw just the ring for sale on ebay - SO - I had another go as you suggested but using a piece of wood instead of a screwdriver and it worked. Now all filters replaced, drained the oil and filled with flushing oil, ran for 30 minutes then drained again, new filter & oil. Topped up the power steering and jobs a good one.

Just a couple of minor niggles to sort out and hopefully I've a good car

Use 2 people

One twists the bottom one way, the other goes at the top ring the other way

Easy :thumb:

I'm thinking of changing the fuel filter - but not sure if botch or siemens - I read somewhere that Peugeot want you to replace the whole unit - they are not supposed to be opened. That's why you need to be Hercules to open them up.

Also read that you need to be very careful when just replacing the paper elements as muck gets into the fuel system if you're not careful.

It's a DW10TD Dave. I'ts done 126k without a new fuel filter and is starting to play up by hesitating for a second or so when I'm giving it some beans. Also anti pollution fault sometimes.

I had a bosch fuel system on my 1.6 HDI 90 and the fuel filter was a sealed unit. A Crossland replacement filter unit is currently £18.30p from eurocarparts which isn't much dearer than just the filter element for the siemens system on the 2.0L HDI 90.

The price for a new filter housing for the siemens system seems to be around £75 so I guess £18 for the filter & housing complete is a bargain.

If you register at Peugeot Service Box and enter your VIN number once logged in and clicking on characteristics will tell you all about the build of your car. Look down the list for Fuel supply-Engine and click on that the you will find out if it's Bosch or Siemens

Owner neglect? I make sure that the engine oil is changed every 30k - whether it needs it or not. I read somewhere that as long as you change it regularly, then there's no problem.

Thanks Storeman - useful site - clearly explains how much kit is missing from my GLX model. GLX - more like a base model.

Of course it has the more expensive siemens fuel filter. Dagnabbit.

ive been looking at various fuel filters for my 307 2.0hdi 90bhp with siemens fuel filter

the original is part no 1906a6

the original is made by motaquip

there part no is vff422. you can get one on ebay for about a fiver delivered. much saving over all the genuine ones on ebay

not being funny but 30k for oil and your worrying about a fiver for a filter. lets hope i never bump into you in the pub lol

I've just read the 'hand book' - apparently the fuel filter is due to be changed every 36k - pfaff - I'm on 126k and all is fine.

I'm fairly sure that the hesitation is due to me resting my foot on the clutch pedal. I'm assuming that the fuel is cut off with a little light pressure on the clutch pedal. If I take my foot off the clutch pedal entirely it seems to run without problem.

Thanks for the responses guys.
