I wake up first.
She is asleep.
Although a little movement wakes her.
It is nice outside again, so today I will…
change the fuel filter for my car.
i have all the items you need, a new filter, that has been roaming around my boot for some time, drivers and spanners and a green can full of diesel.
I look at the bonnet.
And decide I’m missing one vital tool. I go and get it,
and leave it to one side ready.
I open the bonnet.
The fuel filter is located at the front on the left hand side.
There a five screws to take out.
And 4 of them come out. One though is stuck.
Time for different tool.
oh hold on, that broke to.
And thus out comes the spray, while I wait for my dad to bring a heavier duty tool round to do the job.
While the spray has time to penetrate I get the wood out.
I decide where I want it and then place the plants where I want those too.
I goes the soil.
It would appear my one plant is pot bound. but not for long.
And then I tidy up.
just in the nick of time as my dad has made it round.
Looks dam good. And will one day look so much better.
Back under the bonnet this does the trick.
The screw moves and I undo it.
All out I use a flat screw driver to free the top.
And somewhere in there is the filter.
I use the screw driver to lift it out.
Well well well, that looks manky. How long has that been in there?
Well at least it is doing its job of keeping those bits out of the injectors.
i suck the diesel out along with the bits.
And then reach for the new filter.
We must not forget to change the O-ring.
off with the old one.
Give the head a wipe.
and on with the new one.
Insert the new filter and align the top.
Ge the green can ready.
Put paper towelling around the filter body and fill the filter housing with new fresh diesel.
Then put the screws back in, Just hand tight, as they are meant to be 7Nm which is nothing.
And as my dad’s car was now here,
We decided to do his.
He though want a genuine VAG filter fitted to his, which I brought a while back as well.
His has a stamped plastic mould on the top.
And a back bottom.
A while later that car is done too.
I look back on the newly set boarder. Yep eventually that will look good.
And then I decide to do some work on the removing the fence and gate post.
This is going to be long and tedious.
Slowly, more and more concrete is removed.
The hole get wider
and I end up with more junk to get rid of.
I have enough and get the lawn mower out.
Yeah now that looks nice once more.
My Carmella looks great.
And I have some daffodils out too.
The water area looks okay.
And the comfy chairs look like a work of art.
i take the mower around the neighbours.
And after all that, I look forward to an enjoyable carvery.
