    Default Fuel Filter

    Hi there guys,

    Me and my dad are going to be servicing my 2003 Vectra C shortly (oil change, oil filter, air filter, fluid top-ups, pollen filter, brake pads etc.).

    The car is 8 years old, and we have no idea of previous service history - so we want to do a decent, comprehensive job.

    My question is: What about fuel filter?

    Does the fuel filter need replacing? I know a lot of '24 month services' include a fuel filter change, so I presume it is a good idea?

    If so - how do you get to it? I did a quick Google search but couldn't find out specifically where it is - just how to remove it!

    Many thanks,

    I see from your profile that the car in question is a 2 litre dti. You will find the fuel filter in the black container thats mounted at the top of the bulkhead behind the engine, easily spotted with the fuel pipes going to the top of it. Once you get it cleaned out be sure to fill it with fresh diesel before replacing the top to eliminate any starting problems you may get due to air in the fuel system.
