Has anyone replaced there fuel filter?
Don't know the age of mine, and the fittings look rusty.

I've not attempted to turn them yet - just sprayed with WD40, does anyone have any advice, I don't want to bust something and cause a leak or damage the rubber bits of the hose.

A video is here that explains how... but looks much tidier than mine.
http://www.roverparts.com/resources/videos/fuel-filter-replacement-defender-90/ (its American NAS version but close enough).

Anyone know the fuel hose part numbers if all goes badly? it will also mean a tank drop Sad

So I'm reluctant to mess - but conscious the filter fill need a change one day

well its been replaced - was a bit of a pig; plenty of plus-gass and steady and its now been replaced.

One of the unions had siezed to the pipe - couldn't free it without the whole piep turning in the crimped end Sad-

but one was free so I could spin the filter off the siezed union and replace; may need to replace that pipe at some stage.

Those pipes are really expensive - anyone had them replaced - can they be made at a specialist for a fraction of the LR cost

anyone having problems, this is definitely worth buying and keeping to one side

Although I got mine done, one side is seized so this is bought to go into stock until one day its needed - or the rubber bits perish and my fuel consumption goes through the roof Smile

Good find.
I carry one in the truck that I found on ebay - they seemed to be elusive at the time.

Now it seems they aren't so will get one too. Thank you
