EuraMobil Filter Changing in an 810 A class,

Just returned from a good trip to Brugge and i have an engine light come up - given symptoms I suspect diesel filter. So - I looked up that you need to remove the airfilter housing to get to the fuel filter behind, 2 issues - the airfilter that you need to remove has a paper cylinder that is so big I cant get it out without damaging it - which I have now done (damaged it) - the airfilter housing is also really difficult as the nuts inside that are usually captive are not?

am I being thick - it cant be this hard to change a filter!!

The problem is that an A class is built around the base vehicle mechanicals without ANY thought being given to routine maintenance because it's not the converter who will need to do any (maintenance) That's why it's often a lot more expensive to have any work done on an A class.

I had a Fiat based Hymer a few years ago now, it was a b***rd to work on anything under the bonnet because it didn't have a bonnet!!! Just what can best be described as a small hatch on the front of the vehicle. I had to change the battery on a campsite in Belgium, much use of the more dodgy side of the English language (worryingly most of the near campers seemed to understand perfectly what I was cursing) alongside a hefty case of "No more skin on my knuckles"

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I did a battery change on an A class - it reminded of my first child being born.

You don't say what year your 810 is?


I had a 2001 which was 244 based and do seem to recall the problems you mention, especially the non captive, captive fasteners!


The Eura is nowhere near as bad as Hymer, Burstner A class vans, indeed some worse than others.


My current van a Pilote 733 on a Mercedes base has wonderful access probably as good as the original Sprinter.


Don't despair the odd down side with the van is outweighed by the good bits.

Cool

Re-assembly will be the reverse procedure of Dis-assembly...

And no - I haven't had to do this job on mine

Cheers

2007 should be an X250 then, is it?
Do you have the correct tools to change the filter element?


If not and you improvise, you are likely to suffer the dreaded diesel leak!
Which unlike the gassing myth is real and will cause you a real problem should you cause it.

I dont know about this - I also dont know if X250 is a reference to the filter or the engine type - con you tell me more? The filter is a simple cartridge cylinder and not anything that looks complicated? It has push fit hoses and a screw in holder for the reservoir.

the X250 is a Fiat code

the X250 Fiat unit needs a special tool for the fuel filter - Blueprint part no. ADK85502 or Draper 38601 - not cheap but then it is correct and not a 'workaround'

Your van is Fiat based?

If you look at your V5 check the VIN code, it should be something like ZFA244 or ZFA250. Fiat ceased production of the 244 base vehicle in 2006.

Your description of the filter confuses me slightly, from memory the 224 style filter is a replaceable cartridge type element that is sandwiched between a top and bottom carrier assembly and the X250 one is a complete plastic assembly with push in plastic fuel hoses that has a removable top (using the aforementioned tool) which houses a replaceable pleated element.
