I have no idea where they are on these, but when removed you'll naturally get a little bit of fuel come out from fur lines, but this will
Stop as engine will be off.

Then put new one on, and when you ten engine on, it will take second or two longer and fuel needs to get back into fuel likes etc.

Jobs a good'un

If its like mine at the back of the engine near the bulk head there's a black thing with a 32mm screw on it that's the oil filter and just to the right there'd the fuel filter 2 pipes going to it., push the tabs in on each pipe pull them out then take the torx screw out the top .

Change the fuel filter possibly fit new o rings if it comes with them? , the only problem that came across when I done it as once I started it up ran for few seconds then cut out , to get round this fill diesel in the fuel filter once its in place or put your foot down on the accelerator to force the air out
