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 concluded in 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 dome of coupling with a polyethylene film for the purpose of protection of internal components against contact to following fuel.
3. Get 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 let out fuel.

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

5. Take filtering element from a casing. Track, that the rubber sealing ring acted in film together with a filtering element, instead of remained 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 extraneous particles. Establish a 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 fixing hermetic. Establish a cover on a casing, screw and strongly tighten screws.
8. Fill a power supply system with fuel (see. A power supply system - diesel models).
9. Open the drain gate and wait while the stream of pure transparent fuel will not start to follow from a hose. Tighten the gate and take drain capacity.
