Tried to change my fuel filter today but ran into a few problems.
Firstly here is the new filter from Halfords.
Note the lack of any type of washers on either end. Is this correct?
Taking off the old filter I recovered 3 washers, all different sizes.
In my haste to avoid getting covered in petrol i don't recall exactly where the washers went or in what order.
I did a trial fit with no washers and the fuel line fitted tight on the OUT (engine) side, but fitted rather loosely on the IN (fuel tank) side.
So i tried fitting the washers to the IN side but this means the fuel line is unable to connect.
I have tried every possible configuration from no washers to 3 but it either results in being too slack and leaking or being too big to push on.
Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong
