except that that pic and the part don't seem to go together..

what does the round thing do on the bottom (item 3) when the filter is rectangular? is that the drain? and to replace the filter do you have to remove those screws?

maybe the round thing is the water drain.. and you remove the lower cover to replace the filter (thus the rectangular gasket)

is this made by Ford/Motorcraft?
Is this a direct replacement?
Cost?

Looks to be a lot better filter system, compared to what is on our trucks.

that's the wick plug on bottom and the other is the drain for water and yes ford parts just looked at 2017 6.7 at my dealer its looks just like that and they have a COALESCER FILTER ELEMENT now that gets changed too

There is a possible recall on the early 2017 FDCM's with a problem that the cover might leak. Seems like it was due to possible damage from road trash.

If it turns out to be a superior filter set up, perhaps someone will make a conversion kit for the 11-16's.

Wow I can't believe they're having problems with it. After getting underneath the truck and giving it a good yank it seems solid as a rock the fact that you won't strip out that plastic Bowl like the 11 through 16 models, also there's some different about draining the fuel before changing the filter friend let me take a peek at the manual.

Also it's very interesting that COALESCER FILTER gets changed after so many miles. The mechanic says it's a big Improvement keeping the gases and dirt under control in the engine.

I'm waking this thread because I seek answers from those in the know. Just bought a 2017 F250 yesterday and this is my first diesel. I change my own fluids/filters because a prior sub-par service left me not trusting most so-called mechanics.

Before buying my F250, I researched Super Duty fuel filter changes and am pleased to see the design change for the 2017 MY. But I only found You-Tube videos. A few of them suggested turning the ignition on several times ... not to crank the engine ... but to energize the fuel pump and force fuel into the new filters. All this has me asking three questions:
1) Is that really standard practice?
2) If yes, how does the air escape from the fuel system ... Shrader valve in the fuel rail?
3) How can I energize the fuel pump without cranking the engine when my F250 has push-button start (no key)?

I appreciate any info y'all can provide. Thanks in advance!

For push button start you just press the start button without pressing the gas pedal. I did the fluid flush this weekend and it was very easy to do. No idea how the air escapes.

Huh! I thought that method was only to energize "Accessory Mode" ... didn't know it also energized the fuel pump. Thanks!

I wouldn't have thought so either. But apparently it works. I didn't get any hiccups due to air in the system.

Thanks, but that was the video which made me ask the questions in post #10 above.
