LR045519 TDV6 TDV8 FUEL FILTER HEAD ASSEMBLY OE
GENUINE LAND ROVER PART
The fuel filter assembly is located in front of the fuel tank and is mounted on a bracket which is attached to the top face of the transfer box chassis cross member. The fuel filter assembly comprises a bracket, filter housing and the filtration element. The filter housing is secured to the bracket with 3 bolts. The bracket is secured to the cross member with 2 bolts which are screwed into threaded holes in the cross member.
The filter housing has an inlet and outlet which allow for the attachment of hoses using quick release connectors. The filter element is located on the underside of the housing and can be removed by rotating one quarter turn to release from the housing.
The filter element has a capacity of 200 cm3 (12.2 in3). The filtration element can filter particulate matter larger than 15 microns. A water drain valve is located on the base of the filter. The filter can be purged of water by partially unscrewing the drain valve and allowing at least 84 cm3 (5.12 in3) of fuel to drain into a suitable container. The drain plug has a centre outlet which allows for the attachment of a drain hose.
The filter element also has a water sensor located in its base. The sensor is screwed into a threaded hole in the base of the element. When the filter is replaced at service, the sensor can be unscrewed from the element and installed in the new element. The sensor has an electrical connector located at the side of the element which can be disconnected to assist element removal.
The water sensor is connected to the Engine Control Module (ECM). When the water in the element reaches 64 cm3 (3.9 in3) the ECM issues a high speed Controller Area Network (CAN) bus message to the instrument cluster to display a ‘WATER IN FUEL’ message in the message center
