Hi, I've changed my fuel filter on my 2007 1.8tdci ford focus. Now the car won't start? Ive checked for air and bled it and started the engine with the pipe off and no diesel is pumping out?

You sure, you didn't hook it up backwards?

Hi
It drops in a holder and only fits in one way.
Mine has a screw off top and filter drops in.

Is here a hand primer. It will look like hand size black rubber granade. Squeeze this until hard, then try to start. Thanks.

Hi
Theres just a bleed nipple on top and a drain cap on bottom?
No pump like a grenade.
Cheers

Try priming the filter, by removing it, filling with fuel, then refitting it. Then try. Thanks.

If there is no primer it will be self bleeding, but you will need to fill the filter holder with diesel as much as you can, this will help the pump to pick up pressure as you crank it over on the key.
