    The filter is held on by 'o' rings and needs a good pull to remove it.
    Watch out for the odd spillage of fuel when it comes out.
    I syphoned of some diesel with a syringe before removing.

    Just screw it off and give it a good yank - as said, it will spill and because it is in a vacuum and it will splurt everywhere so be carefull

    You could clean it out a bit as well as it will be minging and black
