Manta Volvo md2030 fuel filter change?

Hi All,

This may seem like a silly question but, when changing fuel filters on volvo penta md 2030 do you shut the fuel off or leave it on?

And is there anything special that needs to take place before and after unscrewing and screwing on new filter?

Hi Superick

On my MD2030 setup you have to shut off the fuel as tank is the above the hieght of the engine and the line is pressures by fuel.
As for changing the filter just unscrew, bleeding will be easier if you fill the new filter with fuel first then install.
As for filter tool I use a plier type.

Good Luck
