I put together a simple how to thread showing how I change my fuel filter (2007 Toyota Hilux). This should be the same for both the 2.5 and 3.0 D4D engines.

This is what my filter setup looks like:
Image

The tools required:
Image
Yeah, thats a bottle cap with a makeshift hole in it.

Firstly, Drain the filter via the butterfly valve:
Image

Insert one end of the hose into the cut bottle cap on the bottle and push the other end of the hose onto the butter fly valve:
Image

Pump the primer pump on top a few times.
Heres what came out of my filter:
Image

Disconnect the two wire harnesses and slacken the ring holding the primer pump to the fuel canister
Image

Lift the primer pump assembly up
Image

Remove the filter cartridge from primper pump
Image

This is what inside the canister will look like (the amount of gunk will vary depending on fuel quality)
Image

The following is only required if you're going to clean inside the canister...

Remove the canister from the vehicle by sliding it up
Image

After I drained the diesel this is what we get in our fuel...
Image

Hose out the inside of the canister and let dry properly. I left it in the sun for about 15 minutes.
I forgot to take a pic of inside the canister after it was clean and dry.

Re-install the canister by inserting it into the bracket as shown and then sliding it down
Image

Continue here if you didnt have to remove the canister

This is the new filter still in the box
Image

And the contents...
Image

Change the rubber ring on the canister with the new one with the filter..
Image

Remove the new filter from the packaging and admire...
Image

After admiring, insert the filter cartridge into the canister
Image

Ensure the filter cartridge is seated properly
Image

Re-install the primer pump on top of the canister and tighten the ring to secure the primer pump to the canister
Image

Bleed the fuel filter by repeatedly pressing in the top of the pump until it gets hard to press.
Image

Start the hilux and you're done.

I planned on changing my filter every 15000 Km. The actual figure since the previous filter change is 13931 Km.

Interesting thing to note, on the side of the canister there is a little note:
"No need for periodic replacement"

To get the light off:

- ensure the engine is off
- unplug the wires to the diesel filter
- turn ignition switch to on for a few seconds (about 10 should do) & turn off
- plug in the wires on the filter
- start engine and let run for a few mins

you should at least open your filter and if its dirty inside. If it is you could clean it out as i described in the other thread. Chances are the light will come on again if there is gunk in the fuel canister.

Not a bad idea...
Might just have to "retro-make" a bracket and hose connection fittings.

Great Thread ...was now about to post up but did a search...

Anyways I changed my fuel filter today......at 17500km.....Was wondering if this was a good interval to change as I didnt notice any guidance from toyota as to when it should be changed......

When i opened the canister and checked it though it need replacement......but didnt get the chance to get the original filter so had to use an aftermarket one for the vigos......cost $55......

May still get the original one and replace after a couple miles again.....

Also had the cause to change the air filter $100....after market again.....

Thinking about getting the K&N filter for it .........

Any advice or recommendation about using after market filters.......apart from oil filter which I use the original...and about interval period between changes?.

thanks guys......
