thought I would have a go at my fuel filter on a 2.5di. wish I had not bothered I,ve owned the van for a year so no idea when it was last changed, but the big plastic nut will not move even with a strap wrench & one of the pipes refuses to disconnect so shut the bonnet gave it a dirty look & had a cuppa :evil:

Are you taking the filter head off.

Probably the later filter with the big black plastic bit around the filter that you twist of to drop the filter.
I’ve never had a problem removing them but have read others struggling to get them shifted.
