Hi,

I would like some help please.

I'm unsure if I'm doing something wrong when replacing my fuel filter on my 2011 207CC 1.6 HDI with metal canister but once changed it I cannot get the car to start, (seal not fell out)

As there is no manual bleed bellows how do I bleed it? This appears to be my problem.

All pipes connected, turned the engine over many times but won't start! Do I need to leave a fuel pipe off the filter to allow fuel to rise to the filter?? Anyone else had this problem

Kind regards

Terry..

Hi wayne,

No there's no manual priming device fitted on later 1.6 HDI models. later models are 'Self Bleed' apparently but mine is a real sod to do. I'm sure there's a trick to the trade in assisting self bleed.

Hi Wayne,

Many thanks for taking the time to help me out. The link you gave is 'Perfect'

My understanding was the system was self bleed, apparently not. Refering to your link I noticed I have a bleed plunger on top of the filter housing, never noticed this as it looks like a piece of the moulded casting. The ones I have used preciously on Peugeots are the rubber belows type!

Anyway, again many thanks for your time.:thumb:

Kind regards

Terry..
