United Kingdom 2007 Freelander 2 TD4 SE Auto Tonga Green

I attached a short length of hose and a long length of pipe to a priming bulb.

Short length to filter output (light blue box) and longer piece down to a bowl/collection vessel.

Pumped bulb until diesel flowed without bubbles.
Removed bulb hose.
Re-attached the output hose to filter.
Started first time. Was a bit hesitant but soon picked up.

PS - Attach rear pipe (above light blue box) not attached in my picture before priming.

A genuine Landrover fuel filter is preferable to an after market filter, some of which can give problems. Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

Having just changed my fuel filter am interested in knowing what are the purposes of the 4 pipes in my attached pic A,B,C and D
Am asking as it says to prime the filter so which hole do I put in diesel. Not got any diesel so will use ATF.

Hi

Since I made the last post have found out the purpose for the 4 pipes. I filled up the filter via orifice A, pipe A still had fuel in it, and she started okay just hope she keeps running okay.

I'm going to do mine at the weekend and I reckon Denboy's method is the most logical to me, Vacuum pump on return to tank pipe fitting (A) will draw diesel through the filter and fuel rail. Saves clarting about with a bucket full of fuel. I'm going to use the vacuum system I bought years ago that is used to draw oil up through the dipstick pipe on an oil change, but never used it. I'm sure you have to remove the filler cap before you bleed the system as well.

England 2013 Freelander 2 SD4 HSE Lux Auto Firenze Red

Thinking of having a go... Powerful UK video here (on an earlier car) that shows the job from start to finish but...

The new filter is primed simply by allowing the fuel pump to fill it before starting the engine... seems to work but of course, it is just previously filtered fuel already upstream of the filter. After a few moments of engine running it stops - the second video shows how they get it running again.

An easy job made difficult by not priming the new filter...

United Kingdom 2008 Freelander 2 TD4 SE Manual Rimini Red

The Powerful UK video shows how NOT to replace the fuel filter, and definitely how NOT bleed out any air. I couldn't believe those fools actually cracked an injector pipe and cranked the engine over. With the sort of pressures involved with a common rail system, this sort of thing is just stupid, and shows a complete lack of understanding for the vehicle they were working on.

What I do is simply drown the new filter in a container of clean diesel till the bubbles stop & connect up. Works every time.

They obviously haven't read the JLR FL2 workshop manual. Information on how to bleed the system is clearly described. It works for me every time with little mess and near-zero chance of getting dirt in the engine side of the filter. Jules

I always use this cheap tool to prime the filter before starting the car, connected to port A.
Works really well, never had a problem with it.
