    Full service

    Today for the first time I did a full service on my s3 2001.
    I changed oil,oilfilter,sparkplugs,air filter,anti freeze and fuel filter it took aprox 2hrs witch I don't think is too bad.
    And was only using a trolley jack all went well apart from one little thing,
    Where the thin hose goes on to the back of the fuel filter it broke slighty just as it goes over the little lip on the fuel filter. I got it back on I can't see any leaks at all do you reckon it will hold or just burst off is there anyway of securing it on abit better.
    Also where does the pollen filter go ain't 100% sure
    Thanks will

    If you cant pull the hose off without pressing in the clips then it will be ok consider yourself lucky when i did mine the first time i snapped mine off and had to replace it lol. The pollen filter is under the scuttle panel where the wipers are.
