Fuel filters are usually mounted under the car. Most will either be forward of the rear wheel well or lined up with the drivers door pillar. They come apart with a tool which disconnects spring clips on the ends of the fuel lines.

Go to an autoparts store for the disconnect tool.

I need to change the fuel filter. where is it located. do i need special tools ?


The fuel filter on most Mazda cars can be located on a bracket in the left rear of the engine compartment, next to or beneath the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir or as part of the fuel pump assembly.

On the Millenia, the fuel filter is located beneath an access cover in the trunk. Access to the cover is achieved by removing the trunk mat to expose the cover.


The filter on Mazda 3 models is part of the fuel pump assembly.
