Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello! My name is Gary.Welcome to JustAnswer.I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.
What vehicle do you have here?
Did you replace o-rings as necessary?
Genuine or aftermarket filter kit?
Is there a locating key for the filter to align with the top housing?
How did you do up the retainer ring?
I would take the whole assembly out now to see what's going on.
Possibly the o-ring has been pinched.
Have a closer look at the relationship of top to bottom on assembly.
I think it is only meant to go in one spot.
Did you mark the ring with a marking pen prior to disassembly?
Is the bottom fixed and the top comes off, or the other way?
Finding a pic of 2010 hiace is a little difficult at the moment.
I'm thinking about Hilux etc.
Where is your fuel filter, is it under the seat access panel with the engine or underneath on the chassis rail?
I'm sorry I can't give you any further advice except to go backwards in your previous steps to where you can see the o-rings.
I've seen other plastic housings crack when disassembled incorrectly.
If you like, I can pass your question to another tech, who may be able to give you some further advice.
