307 2.0 hdi, ATED BE4 engine

I'm attempting to repressurise the fuel system at the fuel filter, as I'm switching on the ignition to get fuel through the filter, I've got fuel coming out of the hose connecting to the outlet.

I've got 3 hoses connecting to the filter, one at 12 o'clock, one at 3 o'clock and one at 9 o'clock.

12 and 9 o'clock are connected to the filter, 3 is unplugged and a hose connected to the outlet.

Should fuel be coming out of the 3 o'clock hose too?

Cheers, I've had the engine running, which was a relief!

I wih Haynes would stop omitting important details, such as gather fuel coming out of the open fuel line. All it says is to cover them to stop dirt getting in.

Going to take it out for a spin to make sure it runs ok under load......

The missus won't be happy if it packs in on me. I'm supposed to be picking her up tonight......

That's what happened yesterday when I was going to replace the fuel filter - it gavel he step-by-step instruction on how to remove, then there was a note on the end which said that everything they instructed on how to remove the filter from the housing was a loads of bollocks, as they couldn't find a way to remove the top without breaking it!

So now I need to get hold of a new housing assembly before I destroy the old one...

the top on the fuel filter can be removed, use a strap type oil filter remover or jam jar lid remover

That's what I thought - I tried turning it by hand, but couldn't budge it. I thought I was missing something, so I checked Haynes only to read that they couldn't dismantle it without breaking it.
