[DML] Re: Fuel Filter Change

Take out the old one, put in the new one. Easy on a lift. Wear 
goggles and keep your mouth closed when you unhook the lines. Let the 
car sit about an hour before you start unhooking things or release 
the fuel pressure up at the fuel distributor. 

I've run into two problems:
--There was, for a while, a Bosch filter available (under the exact 
same part number) that had a different connection on the inlet side, 
and would never tighten up (it was designed for a banjo fitting and 
not the pipe fitting used on the car). I think these are all out of 
the normal supply chains now. 

--With some Bosch filters, if you overtighten the fitting on the 
inlet end it can bottom out inside the filter and choke off the fuel 
flow. After you move the fitting to the new filter, make sure that 
you can still blow thru it. This can be cured by either not over-
tightening the fitting or grinding it a bit shorter. If the car 
refuses to start after you change the filter this is probably what 

After doing all this it may take a couple more cranks than normal to 
re-start the car as the system fills back up and pressurizes.
