Thanks for all this advice - I now have the job done and thought i might leave an update should it help anyone else.

My 2007 Van did have a Vin starting 244 and the fuel filter doesnt appear to need a special tool as in my case I was able to stop any fuel leak by tightening by hand. Actually the initial leak appeared to help bleed it.

I didnt take out the air filter housing as I saw it was on rubber mounts ( and I still dont know how you would without dropping the engine) by removing the screen wash upper support arm near the filler point a 10mm bolt you can pull the air filter housing forward and push the large air filter cartridge inside and over the housing internal tube - its really tight - as it is hard to clear the ally cross brace that supports the wiper motor BUT when complete it is appropriate to have a little cheer and some celebratory expletives to show your engineering prowess.

So your van is a 244 derivative, although registered in 2007! not unusual for motorhomes to be registered some time after being actually built.


I'm still at a loss to understand your comments ref the filter fitted to your van, from memory the 244 type filter has a 13mm headed bolt passing up from the bottom cup of the housing, which needs to be removed for access and then tightened to re-assemble.


The X250 is totally different as in picture attached (not a very good one unfortunately)

according to my info there was a choice of 2 filter types for 244 vehicles at 2007ish, either the earlier screw on self contained unit with drain, or the unit requiring dismantling to fit an element. The X250 had only the later type

The photo looks like the item I have in mine. I managed to tighten it by hand which I assume provided a compression fit onto the large O ring which I reused as one didnt come with the filter. I guess I was lucky but the ridges appear to be design for hand tightening - maybe I will take it for a run and confirm my luck.

You learn something every day, the newest 244 I had was a 2005 made version, definitely the older style fitted to that.


For your info, if the mounting bracket is the same as an X250 then once the pipes and electrical connections are disconnected the filter unit lifts off of the mount bracket, makes it very easy to service.


Hopefully you won't suffer the dreaded leak.
