Re: Renault Kangoo 1.9 diesel unable to bleed air from fuel lines
If no priming bulb, then should be an electric pump which primes system.
Can be force primed with Clip but usually just cycling ignition on and off will fill filter.
With top bleed nipple open, get someone to turn on ignition but not to start.... should see fuel coming out, tighten when you do.
May need easy start to kick it into life.
Once motor is running, any remaining air should self bleed
If you are still seeing air after motor is running, possible air leak at pipe joints into filter or if a replaceable cartridge type, gasket.
