Mann offers practical fuel filter fitting advice

mnn-videoADE filter supplier MANN has launched an installation video providing step-by-step instructions for workshops for installing and removing the new PU 11 001 z KIT and PU 11 002 z KIT fuel filters.

The installation sequence for the new fuel filters differs significantly from that of its predecessors, WK 820/5 up to and including WK820/22, with for example, the filter now installed on the underside of the vehicle rather than in the engine compartment. The mechanic must therefore first identify whether he has to drive the vehicle onto a lifting platform or over a pit.

When changing the filter, a patent pending bayonet holder in the housing cover and on the filter ensures that the filter remains in the housing and does not fall out. The fuel can flow into the cover, where it collects and drains away via the drain screw. When installing the new filter, it must be engaged by turning it slightly.

The video containing full installation and removal instructions is available on the MANN-FILTER YouTube channel and in the MANN-FILTER online catalog. The new fuel filters still come with printed installation instructions, which also contain a link to the video.
