Fuel filter help.
Hi guys, i'm new to the forum recently got my first alfa a 147 1.9jtd. Looking forward to reading some good stuff on here.
Anyway I have a problem already, basically my old fuel filter was leaking diesel out of the bottom so i bought a new one to replace it. Anyway to cut a long story short, what is the electrical thing that was connected to the bottom of the fuel filter? Is it important because it snapped when i disconnected the old one. I installed the new one as it came out of the box (without the electrical connector) ran the engine up and everything seems fine. So what are the electrics for?
