    Morning guys,
    I'm servicing my A3 130 tdi.
    Only thing im unsure of is the fuel filter, where it is ( ive not looked yet ) And when i change it will i have problems with air in the fuel system as it is a diesel and end up having to bleed the system.

    It should be located to the right hand side of the engine near the block, failing that it maybe out on a wing (Like me)...but once installe its just a matter of running the engine at idle until it smoothes out.. Its a self bleeding system so you should okay...

    should be two pipes goin to it and a block with two more pipeswith a R clip on top be carfull that plastic is weak some u have to twist and pull others just pull out


    when u have to the new filter in place just fill it up with new diesel and then install the plastic block and R clip and two pipes

    then you wont have no problems
