    Fuel filter is located under the car by the drivers door. Requires removal of a couple of plastic panels which is a real pain.

    Also note that the filter must be primed with fuel before starting the engine. You can do this by activating the fuel pump (insert key) before attaching the front fuel line.

    I have a few pictures on the computer, but as mentioned above there is a cover under the drivers side, remove it and you will see the filter. One pipe in and one out!:) I done mine in an hour between stripping priming with VCDS and refitting!:)

    The Fuel system is bled with VCDS , Air in the system may mean the high pressure pump will be running without lubrication for several seconds also the engine is liable to stall.
