Xsara Picasso 1.6 HDI Fuel filter... help please

Post by Tam »

Hi,

I went to change my fuel filter today and the one I got from ECP is different from the one I took off( I used my reg on ECP)
Even searching on Ebay, I cannot see a match for the filter I took off car. I have attached pics of the original, which has 2 plug sockets on it and two in/out pipes(marked).
Any ideas guys?
Thanks
2007 Xsara Picasso 1.6 HDI 92

The bit you've highlighted is the diesel fuel heater which has to be removed from your old filter and refitted to the new filter. Just lever up the retaining clips and slide it out. It's a tight fit and might need a bit of help with a broad bladed screwdriver. Plenty of videos on the web. Just search for things like ' swapping fuel heater on diesel filter picasso' or try this one ''

Thanks for that!
So the part I got sent was probably right but needed to swap that heater over?

Yes, sorry I didn't make that clearer.
