SOURCE: i want to know how

Fuel filter is located in the trunk.

1. Relieve fuel pressure
First start up the car in PARK. Open up the hood and pull the Fuel Pump Relay. It looks like a big green fuse. Do this as the car runs. Do not worry the car will stale. Crank engine a few times and turn off ignition switch. Put the relay back in. Disconnect negative battery cable.

2. Reach filter.
This is annoying unless you can fit comfortably in the trunk. Pull out the carpet cover and you will see a metal cover screwed down by 3 screws. Remove these and you will see the fuel filter.

3. Replace
Lay down some shop towels underneith the hoses connected at both ends of the filter as fuel will spill out. What I did was place forceps on each hose to minimize spillage. This is also why we releive fuel pressure so it doesn;t spray in your face. Hoses may be stuck onto filter so I took a very small flathead screwdriver and wedge it between the the hose and the filter nozzels so it will free itself from the filter. Becarful as the fuel filter is filled with fuel. Replace filter and follow your steps back.

SOURCE: mazda cx-7 2008 left headlight stopped working,

check the wiring from the headlight. You want to find the ground wire which is usually a black wire thats secured to some metal part of the car. Basically just check that all your wires are in tact and tightly secured. A bad ground is a very common electrical problem.

SOURCE: need the location on car where is the fuel filter

The fuel filter is attached to a bracket located in the left rear of the engine compartment. Look down in the space between the master cylinder fluid reservoir and the rear of the air filter compartment, you will be looking at the top of the fuel filter cannister. It's very hard to get at.

Hope helped (remember comment and rated this).

2009 mazda CX-7 an interference or non-interference engine?

the book does not specify that it is an interference engine but it specifically states not to turn the crank shaft with the chain disconnected. To me this means, treat it as possible valve damage if the chain has broken or if you turn the crank with the chain missing.

On a 2008 Mazda CX-7 Where is the Oil filter located and what does it look like?

Unless the CX-7 is different from all other cars I've driven, the filter is a cylindrical painted metal can, about 3 or 4 inches in diameter and 3 to 6 inches long. It can any color, depends on the brand. Go to an auto parts store and ask them for one for your vehicle, and look at it. Different vehicles take different sizes.
It is almost always located on the side of the engine block, between the oil pan on the bottom and the cylinder heads on the top. (You generally have to put the car up on ramps to reach it from the bottom, but I assume you are changing the oil, so you have to get under it to remove the oil drain plug as well.)
When you remove it, be careful for oil that may leak out of it as you are unscrewing it.
