300 tdi fuel filter

Well, i finnally have the motor here and in the garage.
But in doing some looking around, it seems that the 300 tdi has different fuel filter holder and filter its self then my 2.5 N/A.
Is this an important piece to change out? or can you just use the existing fuel system?
thanks

It is indeed different to the 2.5.

I've not compared them, so not sure of they're interchangeable, but i'd have thought that if they were, then LR would have used the early ones with the 300

300 has the spill rail going back into it.

If you search the forum there is another thread on fuel filters where some people are using different filter housings for the 300.

Swap it out for a Stanadyne filter holder. That way you have more options available.

Mann has a filter that fits perfect the bracket, can find ref if you want.

Yes, the Stanadyne FM100 bolts straight up to the stock mounting location. You just need to add some tubing compression fittings and it is good to go.

It drops right in, it's cheap and you have a lot of filter and accessory choices such as filter heater, water separator collector, etc. I run a long 2 micron filter in it.
