3. Get capacity approaching on volume under a drain hose of the fuel filter. Turn out the drain gate in a forward part of a casing of the filter and completely let out fuel.

4. Strongly tighten the drain gate, then give four fixing screws and remove from a filter casing the top cover.

5. Take filtering element from a casing. Track, that the rubber sealing ring has acted in film together with a filtering element, instead of remains stuck to a casing/cover end face.

6. Carefully wipe internal surfaces of a casing, completely having cleared them of traces of a dirt and extraneous particles. Establish a replaceable filtering element. Track presence on the regular place of a sealing ring.
