    Hi
    I am trying to change the fuel filter and I can not work out if the screw holding the bracket is a Phillips, allen or torqx or just rounded out! It is pretty rusty and all the bits I have tried do not locate. Anyone have any ideas?

    Many thanks in advance Dave

    It's a Phillips head,mine was rounded off as well and I had to grind out the head of the screw with an angle grinder, a remedy I would not recommend because of the fire risk , but if you can get the car on a ramp you should be able to drill the head out and then hopefully remove what's remaining by gripping the screw shank with mole grips. Good luck.
