Diesel Bleeding/Primer Kit

To account for the rise in the popularity of diesel fuelled vehicles, Laser tools have recently introduced a number of diesel technology based tools - part number 5262 is a Diesel Bleeding/Primer Kit that has been developed to allow the user to connect into as many diesel fuel systems as possible using the correct style of connector coupling. There are six different connector types included, covering Ford, PSA, GM, Fiat, Rover, Land Rover, Renault and Mercedes Benz.

When the diesel fuel system is being serviced or fault finding is being carried out, air will be introduced into the system. Most modern systems are either self-bleeding or have a hand pump already fitted, however many can still take some time to purge the system of any air.

To aid the bleeding process, use the Diesel Bleeding/Primer Kit as follows:

Step 1

Identify the best place to connect into the vehicle’s low pressure fuel circuit. For bleeding the system after a fuel filter change, connect into the system before the fuel filter. Ensure the direction of flow is correct (arrow on pump bulb).

Step 2

Pump until clear fuel (no bubbles) is seen in the exit pipe. If air is difficult to purge in the pipes, a 19mm bleed valve is included in the kit which enables this air to be bled off.
