Is there a locating key for the filter to align with the top housing?

How did you do up the retainer ring?

Gary

not that i can see by hand then with screwdriver on the notches ihoped that if i removed housing it would give a better chance to tighten David
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago

Hi David,

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?

Gary

no i did not mark !!!! but how to remove housing cannot find any fixings David
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago

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 have tried for picture also trouble with high ace it is difficut to get to cannot feel any bottom fixing definatly not on top David
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago

Sorry David,

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?

Gary

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Hi it is under passenger seat access panel next to battery no real access David
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago

Hi David,

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.
