I've been reading on VW Vortex about different fuel filters - apparently the Mk V needs a 4 bar fuel pressure regulator in the filter, but some people fit 6.4 or 6.6 bar by mistake. Is it the same for the Mk IV, and what happens if it's wrong??

LOL Egg on face now - e-mailed my garage before getting that reply - a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, in my hands anyway! :) Thanks Corrado!

Yeh you could brake the clips, you need to be patient

When I first started as an apprentice I used to brake them all the time. Quick fix with a cable tie

Dead easy. The only issue you'll have is if the jubilee clamp is rusted. Mine was, but I cut it off and fitted new one. I don't think they're changed that often because when I drained mine, filthy black shite came out!

The hose clips are easy. Just press in the little grey tab and pull

Cheers mate, supposedly mine was done this time last year in my full service at AMD. Had the oil done yesterday at AMD for the stamp, figured it's pretty easy to make it more a full service yourself.

Will do the air filter and pollen. Then look at the fuel pump.
