    confused Servicing Help

    Can anyone be so kind as to tell me where the Pollen filter and the Fuel filter live under the hood of my Vec C 1.8LS? Im changing the oil and filter tomorrow as well as the sparks so might as well do them too.

    Pollen filter under the skuttle panel. Looking into the engine bay, to the right hand side is a pull down part ot the panel. It is behind there.

    Fuel filter?? NO idea, never changed mine and it's at 73Kmiles now

    The fuel filter is normally infront of the driver's side rear wheel.

    Yep, that's where it is on my Signum (fuel filter). It's a bit of a sod to get off as you need to undo a couple of clips which are very fiddly. A pair of circlip pliers makes it much easier.

    Just been out & had a look at my 1.8, I think you will find this is it.
    Look under car driver's side rear door, fitted onto fuel tank.

    Default how the **** does it come off?

    Had no problem finding the fuel filter, but gave up trying to get it off.

    How do circlip pliers help?

    When i look at it, it appears that i need to compress both the clips at the same time and i need to compress the end closest to the orifice where the hose enters the clip. Is that right?

    its pliers for fuel pipe clips, but u could prob do it with a couple of wee screwdrivers u push in bothsides on the wee clip (either black or blue) n pull the pipe off then do the same to the other side, most replacement filters come with the wee clips which will show u how it works, if not u will need to swap them onto the new filter. hope this helps, Martin

    If you squeeze the clip on the oporsite sides to the "locking" tab and pull you should be able to get it off, but be carefull not to brake the clips. Best to replace the " locking" tab,s when you change the filter too.
