Replacement of the fuel filter


Components of the fuel filter

1 — a cover Bolt
2 — a filter Cover

3 — the Filtering element
4 — the Drain gate


1. The fuel filter is put into a plastic casing and located in a forward part of the power unit (see an illustration Components of the fuel filter ).

2. At the corresponding complete set cover a coupling dome with a polyethylene film for the purpose of protection of internal components against contact with the following fuel.
3. Get the capacity suitable on volume under a drain hose of the fuel filter. Turn out the drain gate in a forward part of a casing of the filter and completely produce fuel.

4. Strongly tighten the drain gate, then give four fixing screws and remove the top cover from a filter casing.

5. Take the filtering element from a casing. Track that the rubber sealing ring was removed together with the filtering element, but did not remain stuck to an end face to a casing/cover.

6. Carefully wipe internal surfaces of a casing, having completely cleared them of traces of dirt and foreign particles. Establish the replaceable filtering element. Track existence on the regular place of a sealing ring.
7. Grease a carving part of screws of fastening of a cover with the fixing sealant. Establish a cover on a casing, screw and strongly tighten screws.
8. Fill a power supply system with fuel (see the Power supply system - diesel models).
9. Open the drain gate and wait so far the stream of pure transparent fuel will not begin to follow from a hose. Tighten the gate and take drain capacity.
