It sounds like my filter which isn't surprising given our vans are almost identical.

Assuming your pump is under the floor by the wardrobe, you could undo the screws securing the pump to the floor and move the whole shebang sideways to bring the filter into reach.

The filter casing twists apart and seals with an O-ring.

If you can't access it to dismantle it, I would suggest smearing a bead of vaseline into the joint and that should stop air leaking in.

I'm daft and proud of it.

Thanks, that filter is no longer available and has been replaced by what looks to be a better one, now ordered @7.95 plus postage.

Thanks for suggestion, hopefully all sorted now.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
