Can anyone point me in the direction of where the fuel filter is located? On my MB CDI it was located on top of the engine in the "V". I don't see it anywhere on my Q7 3.0 TDI.
Thanks. One of the service steps calls for draining the water from the fuel filter.I'm not sure if it's the same but here's a diagram of how the filter is routed on the 2.0L TDI engines. It should be similar on your engine because they both have 4 hoses. It looks like there's a water drain but I don't think anybody ever uses it or finds water.
What is that silver horizontal tube adjacent to the fuel filter canister?The fuel filter for the Q7 TDI V6 3.0 part number is Audi # 7L6 127 434 c (7L6127434c). This is same part number for the 3.0L CATA V6 Touareg engine. The fuel filter housing is also the same for the Touareg and Q7.
The filter housing is shown below on the Q7 - it's on the very right side and has a silver cylinder on the firewall coming out of it and 4 hoses. It's on the firewall side of the red hose.
I thought it was a filter because the older ones showed some sort of filter there but I could be wrong. If you change the filter, can you make a DIY with a new wiki article?In the US only the 3.0 V6 TDI is available.
Thanks for the parts info. Does your ETKA source indicate what part the horizontal silver tube is?
If his is a 2010 as was mine, this thread has a good link to exactly what needs to be done.I thought it was a filter because the older ones showed some sort of filter there but I could be wrong. If you change the filter, can you make a DIY with a new wiki article?
