  • Hello again,

    The oil filter is a pain also, it is a paper insert that goes inside the filter housing, this also can't be changed for other oil filters you'll see advertised as fitting on many web sites. It's only about £11 for one of these, which is a much more reasonable  price compared to the fuel filter. The Pollen filter is under the plenum for the windscreen wipers, this requires the removal of the wipers to get to the housing on the passenger side. Also watch the drainage pipes that come from under the plenum as these can be prone to blocking. If car steams up a lot it will be because they're blocked and wetting the pollen/cabin filter. The sat nav works as required but the maps are from 2013 and there is no way of updating that I have found, I have a Garmin with lifetime updates which was £80. If you had the old nav card and wanted to update from 2011 to 2013 mg wanted £150, so a stand alone sat nav was a no brainer. If you hear a rattle from the rear tailgate that you can't work out it'll probably be the plastic below the window. I bought a piece of trim off eBay that is supposed to seal between the dashboard and windscreen and used it on the tailgate instead so no more rattle. Also check spare wheel well for water? If you find any check the rubber stops under tailgate are not screwed out to far as this can let water in to the boot area. I love my 6, I average about 54mpg through all usage, I live in the country and the drive is engaging on our twisty rural roads, but when on the motorway it is a comfortable cruiser.

    Hope this helps you out a bit.

    Cheers

  • Hi Bugstoto
    Welcome to the forum.

    I have a 15 plate TSE diesel also. I tried to find this out previously with no success. I tried different filters from different sites that were supposed to fit but didn't. The problem was that the water sensor that screws in to the bottom of the filter was always the wrong size of thread. In the end I gave up and bought an original. It's supposed to be good for up to 30,000 miles so it's not like it needs replaced every year.

    Hope this is of some help?

    Cheers

  • I fitted the original on Thursday, took less than an hour. Stupid place to put the thing. Having to remove the battery and disconnect the ECU, remove battery tray which also holds the ECU.  The connector at the bottom on the sensor must be removed blind but it's easy enough. As for your misfire and warning I had similar after I first got the car, the battery had gotten quite low on charge and the 6 did not like this. Maybe a test on the battery might stop the warning, give it a good charge, it may be on its way out, just a thought? Not sure about the misfire.

    Thanks for the reply Redzpete

    Have a good weekend.

    Cheers

    There seems to be front and rear ones available on eBay. Just search Mg6 abs sensor?

    Hope it helps

  • No the Meyle filter doesn't fit either. I've bit the bullet and ordered an original one from Mg, I still think £70 for a fuel filter is ridiculous, but since I've been unable to source an alternative it'll need to do. At least I can fit it myself.

    Cheers

  • No problem I bought one a Delphi Hdf 592 but this didn't fit, the thread for the sensor at the bottom was wrong. I've now bought a MEYLE 37-14 323 0007 which should fit, but like you I haven't fitted yet. I'll post if successful?
    Thanks for the reply.

    Cheers

  • Did you ever find out about this? Or does anyone else know of an alternate to the Saic filter?

    Thanks on advance

  • brione replied to the topic Turbo Failure in Technical - MG6
    I think that's a generic code, when googled the general consensus is it is your mass air flow sensor.

    Hope that helps.
