    Default Z30dt fuel filter question.

    As I'm new to owning one, I was familiarising myself with the engine bay today. Took air filter out and did air box mod, noticed the clean end of air filter was damp. Any way!
    is it normal for the fuel filter housing to wobble? When holding onto top of filter, you can shake it a few mm each way!

    I have had noisy suspension (no, I'm not on the wrong thread) for some time & lost for a remedy. Usual tapping over tarmac ripples, but also a light tapping too..............
    VX and my MOT garage could find nothing...........
    I took it to another MOT station and they quickly found the source of the light tapping.......Fuel filter wobbling about in the crash box, with the pipes tapping the top lip of the crash box over bumps!!?!

    Technical fix - mechanic beams at me as he points-out a pair of his smalls now taking up the slack, so to speak

    Yes, a few mm is acceptable
    It is designed to be demountable and cuts the fuel off in the event of a front impact

    It's only clipped in mate so get a very small amount of movement

    anything more than a mm or 2 try pushing down to see if it clips in any better
