Hi there , good evening
No worries if you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

I have had a few of these 1.6 TDCI. Vehicles with debris /grit clogging the fuel port in the tank sender
Also the fuel filters are probe to becoming partially blocked under demand
Causing a low fuel pressure code to be set and the vehicle to cut out

These should be replaced every 37.5k

Regards in advance

Brian
