Re: Modus dci fuel filter

Hi the filter is easy to do jack the car up take off drivers side front wheel and the front half of the wheel arch liner it`s held on by 4 plastic plugs which pull out. You`ll see a steel plate covering the filter unbolt it and you can now see the filter, disconnect the fuel pipes and then lift the filter up off it`s mounting bracket. You need to bleed the system, under the bonnet drivers side you`ll see a pump on one fuel line, squeeze it till you see no more air bubbles in the fuel pipe. You must bleed the system or when you start the engine the pump will be running dry (not good). Go to the purflux site and download the instructions on changing the diesel filter for the Modus. Hope this helps.

Regards Richard.
