Thanks for asking Steve, but it didn't go that smoothly!

I'll give you the short version.

I originally ordered the one listed for the car, but like was pointed out, that wont fit as it had a drain on the bottom of it and so it sits too high in the holder.
So.
I ordered another one, off the part number from your photos in your how to guide.
Unfortunately, the thread hadn't been cut correctly, so I couldn't fit that either!
So the original one went back on the car, and the damn thing leaked as the seal had been compressed for that long it wouldn't reseal!

SO FINALLY.
I got a fuel filter for a Land Rover, 2.5 diesel. The thread is spot on, but it's a little shorter than the original.
That's on. It runs fine, no leaks. It might not be original, but if it can filter the fuel for a 2.5 engine, I'm sure it will manage a 2.0.

I presume you purchased one of these then.

Err, actually no.

Its a Purflux CS782.

Its' not as long as the one in your link. It's also a little slimmer. I've had to pack it out a little so it doesn't flap about in the filter holder.
It's not quite as bad as a c@ck in a sock, but not far off!

Hi Richard.
After market filter then, please keep us up to date on how it performs over the winter and months there after.

Yes, no worries.

So far so good. No leaks, runs fine, no issues so far.

Incidentally, this does have a drain on the bottom of it, but it's still short enough to sit in the filter holder.

Thanks Steve.

That was the part number of the one I crossed over, but unfortunately got one with a dodgy thread!
I didn't want to force it on as the crew thread is only plastic.
The damn thing looked like it has been threw about a few times as well!

I'll order one for next time.
Keep in " stock " so to speak.

This is the fuel filter I fitted.
So far, so good.
No leaks, runs smooth. No issues so far.
