Replacement of Fuel Filter (159 JTDM)

Hi, I will replace (change) the fuel filter of my 159 JTDM. But before doing this, I want to learn if there are any important issues during the replacement...

Lots of cars, do not start after changing the fuel filter because of the air inside the new filter...

But I think we do not have a problem with air. After replacement, we do not start the car at first. After doing a few start/stop (without touching clutch or brake), then we start the car. During start/stop, the air in the fuel filter taken... Am I right about this?

And do we need to unplug the battery during the replacement? or is there any other issues that we concern before replacement... Thanks.

No problem for me on 159 JTDm.

I change fuel filter for new, put inside about 200ml of diesel with funnel, and car start for first time

Yes very easy and no need to bleed.
Just watch that the water sensor seal is replaced and properly seated and dont over tighten the sensor, its holow plastic and can snap very easily.
