    Help! 1.5dCi Fuel Filter Removal

    Ah sound thank you - so it's not just me! I also noticed you changed the gearbox oil (from your other forum post). How did you find that - basically I've got no experience doing it. where can I find the drain plug, and was it really awkward to refill? Cheers

    Yep, I could only take off so much with the wire brush unfortunately. I don't have a drill so I couldn't blitz it with the attachment like you did. To be honest I just wanted the ugly rust covered.

    Cheers Sparky. I've got some GT85 (which I'm under the impression is silicone lubricant spray), so I'll give that a try on the other side of the car (y)

    Minor update: I think I managed to sort the creaky/clucky windows. Here's my logic: So the creaking stops when I push down the window by hand, which drops the window a further ~5mm. Therefore there is too much resistance in the actual window runner and/or the rubber sealing/gap around the...

    Help! 1.5dCi Fuel Filter Removal

    So I've been following Guy's steps on how to change the diesel fuel filter on a K12 (www.micralife.co.uk/K12). I've got to this stage: But I just couldn't actually get the filter off; I didn't have an extension bar long enough to prise up from the right side...but it just seems impossible...

    Thank you, but I've beat you to it; I messaged Guy and he sent me the updated URL. ^^^

    Some pictures... The painted brake drums behind the wheels; excuse the very dirty wheels/car: The messy headlight clip repair: Before I cleaned the number plate: 'During': After the clean up and new fixings: Pretty happy with that, especially at a grand total of 89p :geek:

    Also, I think I've finally sorted the ride height on the car. I dropped the rears, as much as I could, by removing the top locking ring. The bottom (collar?) is needed to hold the spring securely in place. Just by dropping the rears, it's kind of balanced the fronts, which sit a tiny bit lower...

    After that, I tried to change the fuel filter, but couldn't actually remove the filter from its mount thing. I removed the battery and airbox. I removed a bracket holding some pipes (for access) and took 2 pipes off the top of the fuel filter. Then according to Guy's advice on...

    I also cleaned my EGR valve over the weekend. It's been on my list of things to do since I bought it; it seems it's good practise and often solves a lot of unexplained engine issues. However, apparently oily deposits in the valve suggest failure of the turbo seals, and I'm a little concerned...

    Feels like it's been a while - I've been (somewhat) busy... Firstly, I sorted my speedo. The circuit board just needed properly pushing back in: I also took apart the heater dials from the front and have some different lights on order: Secondly, I had a look at my passenger window. Both...

    Also lowered the ride height yesterday. To be honest, I winged it with the amount I lowered, as I couldn't really measure a difference in height after making the changes and driving round the block to 'settle the suspension'. I think I turned the adjusters approximately like so: Front N/S...

    Ar man I see what you mean now! Ah well, I guess it was an experience nevertheless. So, apparently there's a limit of picture attachments per post - 30. So here's the 'after' picture for my heater control dials: Not too impressed to be honest. I think it looks a bit naff with the fading of...

    Noo I was aware, but the reason I wanted to fully replace them was because of the cracking on the display bits around the lights, which I wasn't keen on. Buuut my replacements are also pretty tatty, so I'm still not happy :rolleyes:. Just remembered...I forgot to ask...do you know of any...
