2005 Toyota Corolla Verso 2.0 d4d. Fuel filter change
I need to change the fuel filter and haven't done one of these before. I believe I need to remove the fuel pipes, filter housing and filter in one, and fit new one then refit. Firstly, do I need to release pressure from the fuel pipes when removing, or is this ok, and lastly, where is the bleed on the housing one assembled, because I understand its not a self bleed system?

My toyota corolla d4d 2.0 fuel filter light keeps coming on. when this happens it is my understanding that the car may not start, it does not pick up speed and there could be a leakage of fuel. but none of this is happening everything seems fine

From remote site, it is hard to tell what is the root cause, and change pump was done in proper order -- you should post the problem before replacing fuel pump.
Here is what I will do, assume you can do a little by yourself.
Changing fuel filter should be easy by disconnect fuel hose (pipe) from the fuel filter . Since ASE mechanic did job in your house, I assume the old fuel filter is still in your hand. Change it back (replace new filter with your older one) to see if your car will work as before. This supposed to be done before replacing the fuel pump.
If older filter works, then you knew the new filter is the root cause. This could be resolved by replacing another new filter. If the problem appear again, leave the new filter in for over night to see if the new filter will work on the next day (you could use exiting new filter to avoid buying another filter, unless you will get a different brand one). If not, the choice is to use older one for a while when trying figure why new filter does not work.
If old filter does not wok either, then something is in forwarding fuel line between fuel filter and fuel ejection system. Then, that section needs to be cleaned. Assume the pressure is measured at connection between forwarding line and fuel filter.
Under the rear seat there is an access panel, remove panel and 11 screws then the filter is inside the tank. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VAG KM IMMO TOOL
Hi Mervyn, The easiest way of replacing the fuel filter is to disconnect the intake and outlets pipes and remove the retaining nuts from the housing. Remove the unit from the vehicle and hold the pump housing not too tightly in a vice and unscrew the old filter and the sediment sender unit from its base. Screw in the sediment unit and fill the filter with clean fuel. Dip your finger into the fuel and wipe a smear around the rubber seal and the holding the housing upright, screw it together, refit to the vehicle and prime by pushing on the plunger until the action becomes hard. Start the engine and if required, bleed each injector by opening the 17 mm joint onto each injector until fuel is released during idle. Retighten each after about five seconds and any misfire due to air should be dispelled and once all have been bled idle should be smooth. Regards John
fuel filter housing on driver side of motor. need the correct size of socket to remove the lid. unscrew lid and pull straight up to remove filter. remove old filter from lid and install new filter and seal. drain old fuel/water from housing. then reinstall filter into housing. tigthten lid then make sure the petcock is closed from draining it earlier. bump the starter a couple times to fill the filter housing then start engine. clean any spilled fuel and your done.
i believe that that your car has a cartridge filter (paper filter) that goes into a housing and has a cap that you take off to get to it the filter presses into the cap then you screw the cap back on most of the cartridge filter fell off of the caps and sit in the housings by the time you change your oil next.
