coutesy 323 hilux dude...
How to change the fuel fiter in a Hilux 2005 - up.
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:
The tools required:
Yeah, thats a bottle cap with a makeshift hole in it.
Firstly, Drain the filter via the butterfly valve:
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:
Pump the primer pump on top a few times.
Heres what came out of my filter:
Disconnect the two wire harnesses and slacken the ring holding the primer pump to the fuel canister
Lift the primer pump assembly up
Remove the filter cartridge from primper pump
This is what inside the canister will look like (the amount of gunk will vary depending on fuel quality)
The following is only required if you're going to clean inside the canister...
Remove the canister from the vehicle by sliding it up
After I drained the diesel this is what we get in our fuel...
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
Continue here if you didnt have to remove the canister
This is the new filter still in the box
And the contents...
Change the rubber ring on the canister with the new one with the filter..
Remove the new filter from the packaging and admire...
After admiring, insert the filter cartridge into the canister
Ensure the filter cartridge is seated properly
Re-install the primer pump on top of the canister and tighten the ring to secure the primer pump to the canister
Bleed the fuel filter by repeatedly pressing in the top of the pump until it gets hard to press.
Start the hilux and you're done.
