    Default Whine from the back seat - Fuel Filter or Pump

    Hey all,

    Been doing some more pocking about in the new vectra to work out where this whine sound is comming from. IT is loudest in the back of the car or at the drivers side rear wheel when outside the car.

    The noise is a high pitched whine which comes and goes when the car is idilig. When I reve the car the noise lessens but becomes constant... It then returns to an on off sound (although mainly on) when the car drops to idile again.

    The fuel filet on the outside is a rusted mess (figures its been on the car since new arround 8 years ago).

    So i figure its got to be the fuel filter or the fuel pump or some sort of fuel presure / line issue.

    Any ideas what is coukld be and any ideas what I could try to see if the noise can be eliminated?

    On the basis it is the fuel pump is this a DIY job for a relative novice or is it a mechanics job and if so what am I talking roughly for a new fuel plump to be fitted?

    Thanks all in advance.

    Sounds possibly lift pump in tank. Not done one on the bex but can't see it being too hard.

    Can you upload a video?

    trying to upload a video of it now... not sure how good the sound quality is on it... I had to turn the speakers right up to make out the noise... in real life it's quite loud...

    Of and forgot to say.. the car is a 2004 SRI Vectra c 1.8 z18xe with 61k on the clock should that information be needed....

    I had a quick look at the Haynes for the fuel pump and it looks a bit of a ****** to say the least...
