Hi, the filter is by the tank under the car. The procedure for replacing it is pasted below. If you want to reduce the fuel that sprays when you disconnect the filter, take the fuel pump fuse out and run the engine until it dies. Remember to put the fuse back in after repairs are completed. The filter is installed with flared pipe fittings. You have to hold the filter nuts while loosening the line fittings. Use a line wrench if you have one. Do you use vice grips on a pipe fitting. Please let me know if you have any more questions, and thanks for unsing FixYa.

  1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle. Have a pan ready to catch the fuel that will unavoidably run out.
  2. Have a rag handy and wear safety glasses when loosening the fittings. The system will be under pressure and fuel will be sprayed.
NOTE
Due to the confined space between the filter and the fitting, it may be necessary to obtain a thin open end wrench, or before opening the fuel system, thin one as necessary on a suitable grinding wheel.
  1. Hold the filter as necessary with a 19mm or 22mm wrench and loosen the fittings with a 17mm wrench. If space permits, use a flare type wrench. Wrap the filter and wrenches with a rag to contain any pressurized fuel. Have the catch pan ready.

NOTE Always use a back-up wrench to hold the filter, or the fuel lines may be damaged.
  1. Disconnect the fuel lines, loosen the mounting bracket and remove the filter.
  2. Install the new filter but Do NOT tighten the mounting bracket yet.
  3. Make sure all fittings and sealing surfaces are clean. Install the banjo bolts with new copper gaskets and torque to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).

NOTE After replacing the fuel filter, it may take several attempts to start the engine. This is because the fuel loop between the fuel pump and the fuel injectors must purge itself of the air that has entered the system when the filter was removed. For safety reasons, the fuel pump only operates when the engine is rotating.

Form the engine you should see a rubber hose from the intake to a canister. After the canister it should got to either another rubber hose or straight to a metal line. The canister is the fuel filer. Normally it is secured by clamp rings. It can be unlocked by pliers or screw driver. To avoid fuel to spill you may **** the end of the line that goes to the fuel tank and the one to the engine. Have a container ready as fuel from the filter may spill. Once you get the clamp loose, remove the canister and put in the new one. The new one should have arrows which tells the direction of the fuel, which is to the engine. If there are none, follow the position of the old fuel filter.

SOURCE: Audi A4 need to replace rear brake light on audi a4

Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to change the fuel filter on audi a4 1997 v6

Passenger side in front of the wheel well. On the audi it is mounted veritical instead of horizontal on the front wheel drive. If you endeavor to replace it, know that you have to loosen a couple of bolts on the fuel tank and wedge a 2x4 between the fuel filter to get a metric wrench on the fuel strap.

SOURCE: 2000 Audi a4 headlight bulb replacement

At least on the driver side, there really is no reason to remove the entire headlight assembly. I was able to swap out the bulb fairly easily but simply removing the dust cap, popping the connector off the bulb, and then undo the clip holding the bulb in place. The just reverse order to install the new bulb. Took about 3 minutes.

SOURCE: 2005 Audi A4 1.8 Fuel Pump problem?

I had an Audi A4, 10 years older than yours mind you, but it would start then stop, sometimes 10 times but would eventually go. I ran a little WD40 in the key barrel and put the key in and out a couple of dozen times. Wiping it with a cloth each time, lots of dirt came off. My theory and it's only mine, is that the wear on the key left dirty metal deposits inside which stopped the chip in the key being recognised. I believe they had a security chip inside the key.
Anyway after 6 months of this nuisance it never happened again after that. Fixed my problem and a lot of frustration. Maybe help you too.

My Audi A4 2000 TDI year 2005 has run on two tanks of Bio fuel recently and it hasn't recovered... started stuttering. Fuel system has been flushed out, air flow mand air flow meter has been changed but...


Audi 1.9 TDI and 2.0 TDI engines with pump-nozzle injection system, (year 2005 included), don't have permission to run with Bio fuel !!!
First you must replace fuel filter, interflow a quality Diesel additive (for 60 liters Diesel fuel dosage) fill up tank with Diesel fuel and run at least 300 km on highway at 3000-3500 rpm in 4-th gear.
I recommend you Foerch Diesel Reiniger System additive! I use this additive from 3 years ago and is certified on Audi TDI engines!

Where is the fuel filter on a A4 2000-2001 1.8 non turbo


Fuel filter is not fun on this car. Located in the front top of the tank beneath the car. Tank must be lowered to gain access. Banjo nuts difficult to access. Fuel under pressure in line will squirt out... messy. Good job to be done on a lift.
