    I’m going to change my fuel filter this week on my 2.0l diesel, once I’ve changed it , do I need to use VCDS to prime/bleed the system ?

    (I’ve had a look on the internet , but can’t find a definitive answer)

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, extremely important.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    When using ODIS it runs it for about five minutes so VCDS usually times out and the process has to be started a few times.

    I think it times out after a minute. The pain is that sometimes VCDS will not allow you to carry out a further output test without exiting Engine 01 and momentarily attempting to start the engine!

    You could hot wire the relay but it's a bit of a pain.
