2009 VW Jetta TDI - Fuel Filter Change
Fuel Filter Replacement in a nutshell:
1) Replace every 20K miles (I do mine every 10K with oil change).
2) Have the right filter for your housing.
3) Engine OFF! Remove Upper Sound Absorber Panel.
4) Water Separator Service (1 Screw Plug, 1 Washer Seal)
a. Remove Screw Plug and old Washer Seal with Torx T30 bit.
b. Siphon water at bottom of Filter Housing from top of housing - A.K.A Fuel Sump.
c. Siphon enough fuel to avoid spillage when Housing is opened.
d. Reinstall Screw Plug with New Washer Seal. Torque 3 Nm (27 in-lb).
5) Fuel Filter Replacement (1 Filter, 2 Seals on Filter, 2 Seals in Housing)
a. Remove 5 Torx T30 Bolts and lift off Upper Filter Housing with lines undisturbed.
b. If you see any amount of metal particles TAKE THE CAR TO A PROFESSIONAL! You have a major issue.
c. Pull out old Filter and Seals in Housing.
d. Clean as necessary Lower Filter Housing by Siphoning out remaining Water/Fuel.
NOTE: Removal of Lower Filter Housing is not a requirement. So long as you remove any contaminants found at the bottom of the canister by other means.
e. Install New Filter and New Seals.
f. FILL CANISTER WITH CLEAN FUEL to help purge air. (approx. 650 ml or 22 oz) ---OR--- Use VAG-COM to operate fuel pump from fuel tank to prime the fuel system (the air will be sent back to the tank to vent) SEE VAG-COM STEP BELOW (7).
g. Reinstall Upper Filter Housing and secure with 5 Bolts. Torque 5 Nm (44 in-lb).
6) Reinstall Upper Sound Absorber Panel.
7) If you have VCDS/VAG-COM, operate fuel pumps to purge air from Filter Housing.
8) Otherwise, Start Engine & try to run it at 2K RPM for at least 30 seconds. If Engine shuts down, restart engine (this method is not preferred. it is bad for your High Pressure Fuel Pump).
NOTE: Turning key to turn on Accessories does not turn on the fuel pumps, from what I have read, only when the key is turned to Ignition (Engine Start).
A visual aid to what to expect when replacing the Fuel Filter on the 2009 VW Jetta TDI (A5 - CBEA ).
I used as a reference the Bentley Publishers VW Jetta Service Manual (2005-2010) as well as a couple of very good write-ups which can be found at the following links. Many thanks to those who took the time to document and share the information at these links.
I obtained the Mann Fuel Filter from IDPARTS.COM (formerly TDIPARTS.COM), UPS Ground Shipping was free with them. Amazon.com also offers the same Mann Fuel Filter for those who are exclusive to Amazon.

VW Jetta TDi 2009 Over 50 MPG
So I'm on my way home from summer vacation and it's a 10-11 hour drive over two days. I decide to find out for absolute sure WHAT mpg this car can get. So after a few hours on the road I pull into a truck stop (I realize now that this time spent on the road in the beginning reduced the displayed avg. mpg for the trip), found a small nozzle pump and start to fill up with b5 diesel. The pump kicks off after a few gallons so, just to make sure, I top it off just once. I pull back on the interstate, hit zero congestion, and drive 116 miles at 60 - 65 mph. I then pull into the rest stop. I hit the men's room (priority 1!) then went for gas. At the pump I take it slow to try and minimize backwash. I do not try to top it off this time. What you see here are the results.

Facebook Album for my car: http://goo.gl/pxEVX
Making this video was the best and worst experience. :S
I learned of a lot of new features in iMovie (yes, I know I need to graduate to FC)
-how to blur a license plate in style (cloning)
-how to use to the PiP feature
-how to compensate for processing issues with color correction
I dropped my MBP off the TOP my car when I was shooting the second set of footage. :( WEAKKK!
I wasn't recording for half the footage I thought I was shooting.
Neighbors called the feds because apparently driving up and down a street looks "suspicious."
All in All: MPB received a few scratches.. Law enforcement is now jealous of my sweet Exhaust note.. And, I'm pretty proud of the final product. Not to shabb.
