Replace top cap with respect to correct position of inlet outlet, taking a photo or marking postion before dismantling is a good idea
refit securing ring and assembly tool and tighten to 30nm.
The tool ensures the casing is protected from crushing or overtightening as it will distort rather than accept more torque.

Can be sourced for sub £18 delivered

It is inconceivable that the housing can be damaged and leak if this tool is used.

The only hurdle that we need to overcome is that we are presently in the Algarve, so need to find our way around. Just in passing the filter in question has been giving trouble free service for the past 18 months before developing the said leak

Hey but thanks ever so much for the valuable information

The one I just sorted for a funster did not leak until after 3k miles since it was serviced. Before fitting a new one I checked the torque of the garage serviced one and it was undertightened by one eigth of a turn. Most leaks are the result of garages not using this tool nor a torque wrench.


Anyone who has any fear of this happening to them would be VERY foolish not to buy a spare off ebay while they are so very cheap! £65

Hey just for added info the two Fiat garages that we have visited here in the Algarve can order one in at an eye watering price of 220  euros so carrying a spare makes a lot of sense if only to rescue another stranded motorhome

Yes I have a spare that I would use to help others but I service my own so don't expect a leak. This filter design is used on a very wide range of vehicles. Many slag Fiat off but it is not theirs but UFI's and if serviced correctly I don't believe they will fail.
