I am not sure where the filter is but follow the fuel lines and I'm sure you will find it.To depressurise the fuel line remove the fuel pump fuse and crank the engine over for 5-10 seconds and you should be right to go.Cheers Kevman.Actually I think the filter is in front of the left rear wheel :idea:

Hi.

The fuel filter is located under the car on the left hand side in front of the rear wheel.

When replacing it be careful and check that the threads on the supplied filter actually match the car. I have seen a few that don't for some reason.

Also, make sure your head is not directly underneath the filter when undoing it. Petrol in your face is not at all pleasant.

Oh, and buy a workshop manual like a Gregorys. All this sort of info is in them. Most useful thing in your toolbox.

Cheers
BenJ
