c3 picasso Water in diesel filter

Post by piki »

Citroen picasso c3 1600 t diesel 2012

my fuel additive pump was broken few months ago , and after i fixed it it showed me a waring of -risk of filter clogging , and water in diesel filter.
now after i put the new pump with fluid in place (like a month ago) , the risk of filter clogging is gone , (i cleaned the dpf filter also) ,
and the water in diesel filter warning still realy bugging me.
i have tried to disconnect the connector of the water in fuel! filter sensor but it still popps , and some time it can beep for a few minutes in a row....
any advice?

There is a procedure for replacing the Fuel Filter and for the bleeding / water in Diesel. I've put it in the Member Resources Section:

C3 Picasso 1.6 HDi 92 (DV6DTED) Fuel Filter Replacement / Bleeding
