Ludwigsburg/Germany, March, 19 2018 – For the first time, MANN-FILTER has launched an installation video providing step-by-step instructions for workshops for installing and removing the new PU 11 001 z KIT and PU 11 002 z KIT fuel filters.
"With this video we are supporting workshops that work with our filters and making it easier for them to use our products – in keeping with our "Perfect parts.Perfect service" motto," explains Matthias Weller, Product Manager Automotive Aftermarket at MANN+HUMMEL.
The installation sequence for the new fuel filters differs significantly from that of its predecessors, WK 820/5 up to and including WK820/22: For example, the filter is now installed on the underside of the vehicle rather than in the engine compartment. The mechanic must therefore first identify whether he has to drive the vehicle onto a lifting platform or over a pit. The new video contains this as well as other information.
When changing the filter, a patent pending bayonet holder in the housing cover and on the filter ensures that the filter remains in the housing and does not fall out. The fuel can flow into the cover, where it collects and drains away via the drain screw. When installing the new filter, it must be engaged by turning it slightly.
The video containing full installation and removal instructions is available on the MANN-FILTER YouTube channel and in the MANN-FILTER online catalog. The new fuel filters still come with printed installation instructions, which also contain a link to the video.
