Replacement of the fuel filter

At service of components of a power supply system it is worth to remember that gasoline is easily flammable liquid in the highest measure. Do not smoke near the venue of works, do not approach it with naked flame! Immediately collect all traces of the spilled fuel, put the rags impregnated with fuel and lubricants to such place where the probability of its casual ignition is absolutely excluded! Always hold near at hand the class B fire extinguisher! Try not to allow hits of gasoline on open sites of skin long contact such it is capable to lead to development of cancer diseases. Remember that the path of system of injection of fuel constantly is under the excessive internal pressure which has to be without fail dumped prior to work (see the Head of the Power supply system and production of the fulfilled gases).


Before removal of the fuel filter it is necessary to dump pressure in a power supply system (see the Head of the Power supply system and production of the fulfilled gases)!

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The fuel filter is installed on a frame under the car, under a cowl or under the inlet pipeline (address an illustration above).
2. This work has to be performed at the cold engine (having waited for not less than 3 hours after end of a trip). Get drain capacity under the filter, prepare a stock of rags or old newspapers for collecting the spilled fuel.
3. Weaken hollow bolts of nipple connections since both ends of assembly of the filter to pit pressure in the line (address an accompanying illustration), – use a special cap key.
4. Give both bolts of a basic arm and remove the filter assembled with the last.
5. Turn out a coupling bolt of a fixing collar and release the filter from a basic arm. Pay attention to the marking designating connection points to the filter of inlet and final lines.
6. Fix the new filter in a collar of an arm and establish assembly on the regular place, strongly tighten fixing bolts. Remember that the filter has to be installed by a flange down.
7. Having replaced sealing washers (on two with each docking knot), screw hollow bolts of nipple connections of fuel lines. Tighten bolts with the required effort.
8. Further installation is made as it should be the return to an order of dismantle of components.
9. Start the engine and check the filter and fuel pipes for existence of signs of development of leaks.
