Question about 2000 Volvo S40
Ask the dealer where your fuel power switch is located and turn it off. some turn off when you push them in. to turn it back on you push it in and it stays in. after you have located the fuel power switch and have turned it off, turn the engine on til it runs out of gas and turns off. it will run out of gas because you have turned the fuel pump powr off and the engine has burned the line fuel that went in to the engine. after the engine turns off, crank the engine for about 7 seconds. This will remove all the fuel pressure in the line. Your fuel filter will either be mounted under the car or on the engine fire wall. after you have located the fuel filter remove the two clamps (they may be metal or plastic) Take your time and watch how you remove them and you will reverse the order you used to remove the fuel filter clamps and fuel filter. It is a good idea to purchase new clamps with the replacement fuel filter and use them. Ask the dealer to explain how the clamp is removed and installed. He can demenstrate by illustrating it with the new clamps and fuel filter.
