    Iím having a service and ZF oil and filter change next month on my BiTdi. I bought a new fuel filter for the 36k service but we couldnít find it so left it for this one. Itís bloody big enough so I should be able to see it but can anyone tell me where to look please?

    On mine which is the 2.0tdi it was under the plastic trim on the drivers side, uk. Easy enough to change but be quick as some fuel loss. You also need VCDS to prime.

    Definitely under the plastic trim directly below the drivers seat (underneath the car) on my 2016 BITDI Allroad.

    Under the driver seat on my 2015 Allroad also, I changed mine last year, you will need T25 torx, 10mm socket, Philips screwdriver and some pliers. Make sure you have the correct filter as there is a couple of different ones with different size inlet and outlet. Its easy to change, too me about 20mins on my driveway, next time will be about 10mins.
    You have to remove the fabric undertray that goes from front wheel to rear wheel, you will then see the filter, sprung pipe clips on each end.
    As above once changed you need to prime the system, this can be done with VCDS or like I did with OBD11. Some people say you dont have to prime but I always have.
    Have plenty or rags handy and also a dish or bag to put old filter into quickly.
