Filtering

DSC_9504

I wake up first.

DSC_9505

She is asleep.

DSC_9506

Although a little movement wakes her.

DSC_9509

It is nice outside again, so today I will…

DSC_9512

change the fuel filter for my car.

DSC_9511

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.

DSC_9515

I look at the bonnet.

DSC_9514

And decide I’m missing one vital tool. I go and get it,

DSC_9513

and leave it to one side ready.

DSC_9516

I open the bonnet.

DSC_9517

The fuel filter is located at the front on the left hand side.

DSC_9522

There a five screws to take out.

DSC_9529

And 4 of them come out. One though is stuck.

DSC_9530

Time for different tool.

DSC_9534

oh hold on, that broke to.

DSC_9535

And thus out comes the spray, while I wait for my dad to bring a heavier duty tool round to do the job.

DSC_0062

While the spray has time to penetrate I get the wood out.

DSC_0065

I decide where I want it and then place the plants where I want those too.

DSC_0067

I goes the soil.

DSC_0068

It would appear my one plant is pot bound. but not for long.

DSC_9611

And then I tidy up.

DSC_9612

just in the nick of time as my dad has made it round.

DSC_9616

Looks dam good. And will one day look so much better.

DSC_0069

Back under the bonnet this does the trick.

DSC_0070

The screw moves and I undo it.

DSC_9570

All out I use a flat screw driver to free the top.

DSC_9571

And somewhere in there is the filter.

DSC_9575

I use the screw driver to lift it out.

DSC_9578

Well well well, that looks manky. How long has that been in there?

DSC_9579

Well at least it is doing its job of keeping those bits out of the injectors.

DSC_9582

i suck the diesel out along with the bits.

DSC_9584

And then reach for the new filter.

DSC_9585

We must not forget to change the O-ring.

DSC_9586

off with the old one.

DSC_9590

Give the head a wipe.

DSC_9592

and on with the new one.

DSC_9594

Insert the new filter and align the top.

DSC_9598

Ge the green can ready.

DSC_9600

Put paper towelling around the filter body and fill the filter housing with new fresh diesel.

DSC_9602

Then put the screws back in, Just hand tight, as they are meant to be 7Nm which is nothing.

DSC_9608

And done.

DSC_9631

And as my dad’s car was now here,

DSC_9620

We decided to do his.

DSC_9625

He though want a genuine VAG filter fitted to his, which I brought a while back as well.

DSC_9628

His has a stamped plastic mould on the top.

DSC_9630

And a back bottom.

DSC_9633

A while later that car is done too.

DSC_9640

I look back on the newly set boarder. Yep eventually that will look good.

DSC_9634

And then I decide to do some work on the removing the fence and gate post.

DSC_9635

This is going to be long and tedious.

DSC_9636

Slowly, more and more concrete is removed.

DSC_9644

The hole get wider

DSC_9645

and deeper.

DSC_9646

and I end up with more junk to get rid of.

DSC_9655

I have enough and get the lawn mower out.

DSC_9653

Yeah now that looks nice once more.

DSC_9657

My Carmella looks great.

DSC_9659

And I have some daffodils out too.

DSC_9662

The water area looks okay.

DSC_9651

And the comfy chairs look like a work of art.

DSC_9652

i take the mower around the neighbours.

DSC_9666

And after all that, I look forward to an enjoyable carvery.

DSC_9665Ah so very very nice.
