    Right,

    When servicing my car over the last weekend I decided to take some photos and annotate to help anyone out there who would like to save quite a sum of money by doing it yourself!!

    This was on my SEAT Ibiza Sport 1.9TDi PD130 so will be the same for the Diesel FR/Cupra, or should be similar at least. Please excuse any typo's etc as was done very quickly !

    Remember to get all the correct parts from the appropriate place and REMEMBER, this is a GUIDE, quite a brief one at that but it should help! All work you do is YOUR responsibility!

    Hope it helps :)

    -Cheers
    Stu

    No worries, its so easy and compiled it to save others money!!

    Remember to reset your service indicator (INSP + Spanner icon) if it comes up by holding down the reset button while turning on the ignotion, no need to start ignition. Keep holding it down for 10secs or so. You should see it come up with --- or something. Should clear it :)

    Remember its NOT the reset button on your stalk but the dashboard button!

    ah Id love to tell you but I borrowed them off a someone next door :)

    Next time I get my hands on them ill let you know, but dont wait up! Im sure they are easy to find, places like Halfrauds would sell i suppose but worth a look elsewhere to price it a little better!

    Cheers

    I suppose so, you can drop the oil without even getting the car on the ramps if you can get a bucket underneath the sump! :)

    Unless you slammed your beeza to the ground on coilovers anyway!

    Even on those ramps the bumper hit the corners of them so had to slip a couple of bits of wood on to raise the car before the ramps.

    Good luck

    Cheers

    I'm guessing the fuel filter is similar on non-PD engines? Also is the location of the pollen filter the same in the MK1 Leons?

    Not sure about the fuel filter, if it looks the same then I suppose the procedure is similar. About the pollen filter if your lucky it will be but I have a feeling its under the bonnet/windscreen wipers on the right side, as you look from the front. There is a panel there to remove?

    I could be wrong :)

    Remember, this is only a guide, I'm not a mechanic! Just in the field of engineering so have a good idea on how to take things apart and put together again :) lol

    Cheers

    Seatstu, that is one of the best write ups with brilliant photo's I've ever come across. I think you should take up making service manuals!!

    Fantastic many thanks.

    Hi,

    Do you get the o-ring for the oil filter in the same pack or do you order it separate?

    If separate can you post me a link to it?

    Thanks
