Diesel Fuel Filter Replacement | Ridgeway Volkswagen

What we do and why?​

Why does it need to be replaced?

An engine's fuel filter removes dirt, rust, water, and other contaminants from the fuel entering the engine and could become blocked if not serviced.

How often should it be replaced?

Your fuel filter needs changing when it reaches the age or mileage limit recommended by Volkswagen. This limit is vehicle dependant so please speak to a Service Advisor at your nearest Ridgeway Volkswagen dealership.

What happens if it's not replaced?

Clean fuel is vital for your car's engine to perform efficiently. Failure to replace the fuel filter when required could lead to a drop in performance, and could mean your car wont start if it gets severely blocked.

What do we do?

We remove the filter from the fuel system and replace it with a new filter.
