SOURCE: Fuel filter

There is no need to change it frequently. If there is a loss of engine power or if throttle cuts out then may be its the time to change fuel filter. It is recommended by peugeot to change fuel filter (but depends on fuel purity) after every 36000 miles.

You can clean it yourself
Dipp the whole filter body in carosine oil tank and leave it in there for about 20-30 minutes
Pour some petrol in filter with the help of plastic piped and apply a slight air pressure (use a piece of pipe to blow) in the reverse direction (marked with arrows) of fuel supply to clear residue and heavy oil composite that clogged in filter.
Repeating the cleaning process 2-3 times will clean the filter to reuse it without the need of a new one to buy.

looks like it might be possible...
here's a diagram showing it above and to the left of the filter.

remove glove box...
can't tell from this video if there is access to the left of the box from inside.
the actuator is over there..have someone when the box is out change the dial and listen for the noise. This should give you a general idea of it's location and possibly how to access it.
hope this helps a little.
labor shows aprox $85.00 so it can't be that bad. hopefully.

Sometimes stalls after starting either warm or cold. Kia cerato 2011 95,000

Neither can I. Unless you let me have it for what ever time it takes to stall. That costs money. You can buy a cheap code reader. when it happens, Check the codes before you turn it off.
