Hi just bought an xtrail 2.2dci and planning to change the fuel filter now have done this on all my previous vehicles but noticed there is no bleed screw on this one what is the procedure for bleeding one of these i have included a pic of the filter as i gather there are a couple of different types tried trawling through the how to's to no avail. :confused:

The fuel filter has been said a few times.
It is a bit awkward but I think best removed.
A 12 m.m. spanner/socket from underneath, but I have 'adjusted ' the shield
to make it easier.
ALWAYS FILL the filter before mounting.

I removed the hose to fuel pump and pumped the filter cover so long until fuel in coming from the pipe. Reconnect the hose, pumped 10 times the hand pump again and started the car.
