Well I went to euro and swapped it for the Siemens one because I took it apart and found it wasn't a Bosch.Looks same as mine (siemens) check servicebox and it will tell you for sure if you haven't got it out. First time i took mine off we had to use bit of wood and a screwdriver. Since then i can get it off by hand eventually.
The rubber thing goes around edge of the bowl, you have to take the old one out first. The red plastic things i think for when you take the fuel pipes off the top to stop leaks.Well I went to euro and swapped it for the Siemens one because I took it apart and found it wasn't a Bosch.
However the new filter came with 2 red plastic things rather than big rubber o rings that were on the ends of the original once and I can't seem to find anywhere to put them. The filter fits in fine without them..
Yeah I changed the big o ring that goes around the edge of the bowl I was just surprised that the new filter didn't have any rubber o rings at the top and bottom like the one I took out did, it clicked onto the top piece firmly though so I guess itl be OK..The rubber thing goes around edge of the bowl, you have to take the old one out first.

just let us know what the one you took out looked like and we can tell you
there is some bosch cars with siemens filters fitted just to confuse further
This is the one I now have, which is a Siemens type. Can somebody just confirm that there doesn't need to be a rubber seal at the top and bottom of the filter. Just the large one which goes on top of the tubThe one that came out looked like a normal fuel filter with a small hole top and bottom with a small rubber washer top and bottom.
The boshe fitting one I originally bought had a funny shape cut out on the bottom with a seal round it.
The Siemens one I replaced it with had a small hole top and bottom but didn't come with any seals other than the big one to seal the lid, just came with a few red plastic bits. I am a little concerned because it did click into the lid OK but surely there should be a seal between the lid and the filter?
