    I'll have a look tonight and locate it. Do you just remove the old one and put in the new or will that cause air locks etc.

    just unclip it mate its a pain to do use 2 small screw drivers to get the clips off buy new ones thry are like 17p each you need 2 of them it will not cause a air lock. first dont put the keys in the car and let the pressure out of the fule system under the bonnet mate that was you wont get covered in petrol when you do it you might want a bowl to catch the petrol that comes out

    Pretty easy job to do. from memory the filter is on the passenger side of the car down by the rear passengers footwell.
    As has been said, the clips are a pain in the arse to release, but apart from that its an easy job. Remember to put the filter in the corect way of the flow (theres an arrow on the filter)

    Yep as Byron said the fuel filter is on the passenger side and it can be a pain to release the clips. Don't see how you could break them though
