Most newer vehicles have the fuel filter mounted on the inside of the frame rail, driver side, usually back of the driver seat or near the driver seat. Jack up and support the vehicle. Go underneath, and look for the metal tubes running along the inside of the frame rail. If the tubes go into the passenger compartment, your filter may be under the backseat, driver side - remove back seat and look for small door on the driver side. If under car, remove mounting bolt (s) first. Then wrap your wrists with rags to keep the fuel from running into your armpit ( man, that BURNS!!). Wear safety glasses, as a fuel injected motor has much higher pressure than a carburated motor and the spray can blind you. If under the seat, have plenty of rags handy to mop up the spilt fuel and protect you eyes as you release the pressure from the fuel tubes.
Hope this helps!!

What is the best way replace the fuel lines. and what kind of lines can i use


I take it that you replaced the fuel filter as it is probably blocked now.. Fuel continually flows through the lines and it would take a big piece to block them unless it is the fine filter at the end of the pickup pipe in the tank

Cant find the fuel filter


The 2005 Saturn Vue has the fuel filter built into the fuel pump module. there is no need to replace this filter, this filter is a lifetime filter. it will last as long as the fuel pump does, it only get replaced when the fuel pump is replaced, you can not buy a fuel filter for this year or model car, the pump is located inside the fuel tank. I will enclose a picture of the fuel pump module that sits inside the gas tank. hope this helps good day.12_24_2012_11_58_37_pm.jpg

Location of fuel filter


The fuel filter in this car is a life time filter and is located under the back seat area under the car, you must raise the car to replace it. I recommended that you leave it alone if you are not having problems with the fuel pressure and only change the filter if and when the electric fuel pump fails.

I cant locate the fuel filter on my 2005 1.5 petrol almera??? where is it???


the early models had the fuel filter mounted in the engine bay against the firewall. follow the fuel lines from the motor to the firewall. if there is no filter there then it is the late model and the filter is part of the fuel sender unit, this is mounted in the fuel tank and includes the fuel pump. this type is difficult to replace, and sometimes requires replacment of the entire sender unit.
Best way to tell is to call a nissan spare parts dept witn you VIN number and ask if this filter is replacable.

I , i try to find the fuel filter for my hyundai elantra 2001


The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank. Also, a filter sock at the base of the fuel pump located 
in the fuel tank.

On 2001 models the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump. To replace the fuel filter, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the back seat and take fuel pump cover off to get to the fuel pump.Then you have to 1) disconnect the electrical connector from fuel pump/fuel sending unit, 2) disconnect the high pressure hose and the fuel return hose from the fuel pump and 3) remove the fuel pump mounting flange screws. You can then lift the fuel pump and replace the filter. 

Good luck and hope this helps
