did one couple of days ago real fun it was!!! rear of engine from top,take off plastic cover next to wiper blades,then bulkhead panel 10 mm bolts x4 which pulls/slides out,take off metal cap torx bolts x3,disconnect fuel lines small push/clip fittings(used 2 small screwdrivers on lugs),disconect elec plugs top and undereneath,whole filter slides up out of metal crash case-when out, filter housing splits in half when u undo locking ring(i used large oil filter tool),replace filter, refill bowl with fresh diesel,reassemble filter unit refit into car ala reverse!! not difficult but time consuming first time ,took me a good hour-but i'll be loads quicker next time i now know wot i'm doing ??? haynes manual really good photos etc-good luck! chris

not if u refill bowl with fresh diesel,i'm guessing its self bleed system,but make life easy for u r self,no facility to manually prime,would be total pain in a*se if u had to remove again
