  • Servicing my Insignia myself

    The issue i have with main dealer service is you never get back on trade in what you have spent on service work. Try going to a main dealer for a trade in price and tell him the car has no service history then after you have you`re trade in price tell him it has and see how much difference it makes.



    My son in law is a mechanic so any work i need doing (within reason) is done for a crate of Budweiser
    I want to go out of this world the way i came in...kicking and screaming and covered in somebody elses blood...

          Fuel filter is next to the fuel tank, you need to drain the water or replace it depending on mileage.??Oil filter is under the engine.

          what do you mean by drain the water or replace mate??

            Fuel filter can be drained , but should be replaced every 2yr/40k

            if I was to replace mine is it just a matter of unscrewing the housing taking out the filter and replacing with a new one Andy and would have have to do anything else???2.0c dti. Thanks

                The purpose is just to prime the system. I guess if you didn't do it the engine would be starved of fuel for a few moments.

                      Oh well at least it's had a service,

                      that's true.??noticed the hose was loose at the top clip so I'm hoping I only need the clip. any ideas how to take it off ?
