Replacement of the fuel filter — diesel models of release on 09.2000


Design of the fuel filter

1 — the Central bolt
2 — the Sealing element
3 — the Cover
4 — the Sealing ring

5 — the Filtering element
6 — the Spring
7 — the Case


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Merge from the fuel filter diesel fuel (see. Sediment removal from the fuel filter of the diesel engine).
  1. Disconnect electroconducting from the thermosensitive sensor switch and an element of heating of the filter, established between the fuel filter and its basic arm.
  2. Slightly weaken the central bolt of fastening of the filter, open shtutserny sockets of fast joining and disconnect from the filter hoses.
  1. Remove the filter case from a basic arm.
  2. Lower the filter case in suitable drain capacity, then turn out the central bolt, give the bottom nut and merge the fuel remains (see an illustration the Design of the fuel filter).
  3. Uncover also a sealing ring, take filtering element, a spring and the bottom sealant — sealing elements are subject to replacement without fail (see an illustration the Design of the fuel filter).
  4. Carefully clean the filter case.
  5. Plant in the case the bottom sealant and a spring, at the corresponding execution fill in the case the bottom nut (the nut of one type is built in the bottom sealant, another — wells up for the end of the central bolt).
  6. Fill in the case a new filtering element, then, whenever possible, fill the filter case with pure diesel fuel for simplification of a problem of removal of air from a power supply system path — in an ideal level of the filled-in fuel should reach the top cut of the case.
  7. Plant on the case a cover (do not forget to plant a new sealing ring), then establish the central bolt — still check the provision of a sealing ring. Tighten a bolt with demanded effort — do not allow cover deformation.
  8. Start the engine and pump over a power supply system (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).
