Check condition of brake fluid and power steering fluid.

I will only use the Ryco fuel filter with part number Z373 because it has an Aluminium case with makes it easier to seal. The steel filters require great effort to make them seal.

I havent changed oil in my auto box so I wouldnt know what oil sorry.

Fuel filter is on the left hand side inboard of the chassis rail. Its held in by a large 'P' clip. No need to undo the clip just undo the fittings and force the front fitting out the way and slide out the filter.

Dont forget to depressurise the fuel system by going into the boot lift the mat and unscrew the pump cover and take the larger of the two clips off. Then start the car and it will splutter and die. Then you can take the fuel filter out.
Wear goggles incase fuel will squirt out when undoing fittings.
