Make sure the filter is full of fuel first. Then the battery is fully charged.

Loosen off the nuts on top of the injectors and crank in short bursts until fuel starts to come out. Tighten the nuts and repeat the process one injector at a time if it hasn't started after the first procedure. The crucial thing is to not crank for long periods as this can damage the pump due to it being lubricated by the diesel and if it is airlocked it can be damaged. It is important that you either have a filly charged battery or at least have another car to boost yours off.
