Air lock in diesel fuel filter 2002 reg Focus Lx Tddi???

Hi

My Focus wont start but the engine turns. Seems like fuel is not going through the filter. The filter seems a bit loose and I think there is an air lock somewhere.

Does anyone know how to go about getting rid of a potential air lock?

I can unclip the butterfly clip from the metal cap housing at the top but dont want to go further without knowing what I am doing.

Many thanks in advance

I have got a local garage to take a look.

They replaced a split fuel line but have also said the injectors are also only dribbling out the fuel, not spraying it. It is now having to go to a specialist diesel place to go on a diagnostic computer to find out exactly what to change. Either way, I am looking at a bill of minimum, £500.

Not happy. Hope the same is not the case with yours!
