300 TDI Fuel Filter Mounting bolt size/thread?

Recommended Posts

I've always thought that the fuel filter was a bit wobbly and wondered why the 2 mounting bolts were different. <_<

I've only just realised that there is a bracket from the wheelarch that should firm up the whole assembly - I think a previous owner must have lost the correct bolt and used a different sized bolt and a nut. The support bracket was pushed out of the way toward the headlight. :angry:

The support bracket has a captive nut, can anyone tell me the size and thread?

Well that was a turn up for the books!

Yesterday I rang a new "authorised service centre" that has just opened down the road from work and they didn't have the M8 bolt in stock so they ordered one for me.

Went to collect it today and they didn't charge me for it! OK I know the bolts go for 30p + vat or thereabouts but it is the first time ever I have ever got a freebie when buying LR parts! :lol:

Hmm must be desperate for business I was even offered a cup of coffee whilst I waited!
