    fuel filter

    Ive just been on the phone to audi to order a new filter for my car so i can collect it friday and fit it saturday but im not sure the bloke i spoke to has told me the right info

    he said i need 1 filter, 2 banjo bolts (same size) and 2 washers

    but i thought u needed filter 2 banjo bolts that are different sizes and 4 washers as i cant see how using only 2 would work, and when ever ive used them on brake banjo you alsways have 2 per banjo fitting.

    can someone confirm exactly what i do need so i can ring him back if i have to.

    cheers

    luckly ive got access this weekend to a ramp so can get under car properly so going to change oil at same time as can get the under tray off easily

    ive never changed the filter on mine and ive had it 8 years and the previous owner had it from new and i cant see anywhere in the service receipts for new fuel filter, and my car has done 133,000 miles now so think its slightly over due lol

    you need two washers for each banjo, and there are two different banjos.

    Looking at the diagram, one end of the filter is 12m and the other end is 14mm


    The filter isnt a service item, so it will never have been changed.

    GODS SAKE bloody idiot in audi

    i finaly get it into his head that i want to 2banjo bolts of different sizes and i need 4 washers 2 for each of the bolts

    so i go pay on my way past only to find he has ordered the 2 bolts correctly and the filter BUT 4 bloody washers the same size, but he couldnt see what the problem was?????

    we used to have an old guy on parts and he didnt need the computer to tell you what you needed but now we got some young idiot who cant even work out what you need when you have the picture in front of him.


    you say the filter isnt a service item, but surely after over 12 years of use it must be getting pretty mucky inside, so shouldnt hurt to change it

    yeh i agree on changing the filter, just saying that as standard its never changed on any sort of normal interval.

    I regard filters like oil, cheap insurance compared to the possibilties down the line................. !!
    I can share your frustration..... local dealer has a guy who's been there since the 1980s.....brilliant, and pleasant - trouble is he's going to retire ... and it must be getting much to close -- well for me anyway!

    it will be interesting to see how much it has blocked up over time compared to a new one
