Had the car jacked today to do a job & under the rear passenger wheel i spotted this. Never seen one before & i always imagined the fuel filter to be bigger than this tbh, but i'm thinking this looks like it could be it. Just after confirmation really.
Also, i bought the car Sept 2008 & was told the car had had a full service just before i bought it. It'd clearly had the water levels topped up as well as new oil & filter as well as new air filter.
I later found out that no way on earth had the pollen filter been changed. I was told the cambelt had been changed, but i've no proof. The cars done about 116k (without going out & checking).
If this is the fuel filter, it looks a bit tatty to me. From the shots, would you say that it wasn't changed back then at all, or could it may well have been?
Also, i've read a few cases about folk changing theirs & the connecting hoses/clips perishing/breaking. Look like mine are in a bad way from the snaps?
Some flash & some non flash pics....
Also, the heatshield has rusted through at various parts. This a cause for concern or is it ok as it is?
