    If its a petrol there should be an arrow on it shwing what way the fuel flows.

    Also be careful of the plastic clips (Dont force them too much)

    Depressurise the fuel system first, by pressing the pin on the schrader valve that will be somewhere in the engine bay; it will look like a tyre valve, but don't press the A/C one instead.

    i changed mine yesterday its a 2.2 petrol but id imagine its the same. when depressurising put a rag over the valve and then use the screwdriver to push down it saves petrol going everywhere. keep pressing till nothing comes out it took about 30 secs for me.before i did that though and i clamped the fuel line before the filter so it didnt leak when disconnecting the filter aswell. hope this helps
