Changing the fuel filter on a gasoline Jetta is NOT included as a routine service. Which may be good news for you (i.e. they don't need to be changed). Any reputable VW technician will recommend changing the filter between 60 and 80,000 miles, as a precaution.

How to change the fuel filter (that is under the back seat) of a 2001 Volkswagon Jetta Wolfsberg Edition.


The fuel filter for a diesel engine (Tdi) is in the engine bay, a little behind the front right headlamp. The only thing under the back seat is a circular plastic access panel, which when removed gives you access to the fuel pump.

Trying to find fuel filter location on 06 jetta 1.9 tdi


Should be mounted the same as a 2005. On the inner fender, above the right-hand wheel arch, in front of the windshield washer tank. Pull the retaining clip that secures the control valve to the top of the filter assembly. Pull up the control valve and its hoses, away from the filter. (1) To drain water out of filter: At the bottom of the fuel filter, loosen the drain plug, while holding a container underneath the filter to catch the diesel fuel and water. When you have drained the water, and diesel fuel is now draining -- stop! Twist the drain plug closed, pour a few ounces of fresh diesel fuel in the top of the filter. Use a new O-ring when reattaching the control valve to the filter top. When the vehicle is running, check for any leaks. (2) To replace the fuel filter: start where #1 above begins, disconnect the fuel control valve from the top of the filter; mark the other two fuel lines with tape and disconnect them (they may be attached with spring clamps that you will need to cut -- replace them with screw-type fasteners, see instructions below); remove the fasteners and take the filter and mounting bracket from the vehicle. Loosen the bracket and remove the filter. Fill a new filter with fresh diesel fuel (you don't want to try to turn the engine over to fill this filter -- you may burn up your starter) and install it in the bracket, then reattach the bracket to the vehicle. Attach the control valve with a new O-ring and secure the hoses with screw-type clamps. When the vehicle is running -- inspect for any leaks. Hope this helps -- these are instructions out of the 1998 - 2005 VW manual. Should be no different for the 2006.

2003 Jetta TDI deisel fuel filter change


Fill the filter with ATF, if no diesel fuel is handy. The T section with double o rings and a hair clip was removed, pour ATF in the resultant hole until it was full. Remove the clear line from the filter to the pump by disconnecting it at the filter. With a thin tube fill the line with ATF fluid until no bubbles remained. Reconnect the clear line to the filter. The car should start immediately.

I suggest trying a diesel additive in your tank if you haven't been using it. It is available at Walmart as I use it all the time. I have 64K miles on my 06 Jetta TDI with not problems. You also could have something in your tank causing the problem. (condensation)
