Next attempt to cure my power loss saga is to change fuel filter.

I have been told it is easy but what I cannot seem to find out anywhere is what exactly you have to do. If I remove the filter I am going to spill fuel , yes?

Also air wiull get itno fuel pipes, is this OK?

So do i just undo bolts, remove it, catch fuel in rag and stick on new one?

Jobs a goodun, or do I have to disconnect things or block things etc.

Yup, you'll spill fuel alright - don't worry about it though, actually you could, as a precaution, disconnect the battery.
Don't worry about letting air into the line, just make sure you fit the new filter in the correct orientation and then dont get too worried if the engine takes a bit of time to start.

Cheers, yes I guess disconnecting th battery is a good idea when ther eis going to be fuel splashing about.

I will just pack the area wth blue roll or something before disconnecting.
