Many modern diesel fuel systems are very difficult to self-bleed once the low pressure feed circuit has been opened to the atmosphere: common causes of this include removing the fuel filter or a damaged feed pipe.
For an automated diesel filter bleeding solution, the new 51502700 diesel filter filler / bleeder provides quick, clean and problem free bleeding from the low pressure side of the tank to the filter.
The 51502700 provides ergonomic emptying by creating a vacuum which passes through the hoses to the diesel filter and extracts fuel directly from the tank.
It is ideal for use on fuel systems where there is air in the system or in the event of misfuelling.
The integrated vacuum manometer allows the user to accurately adjust the suction strength.
Three common fitting sizes (6, 8 & 12mm) are supplied, fitting all diesel direct injection engines such as DB and CDI including VW, Seat, Skoda, Audi, Mercedes CDI, Peugeot HDI, Renault, Fiat, etc. and is ideal for use when changing the diesel filter.
