Clean all dirt and/or grease from the
fuel filter fittings. "Quick Connect" fittings are used on models
equipped with a pressurized fuel system. These fittings must be
disconnected using the proper procedure or the fittings may be damaged.
The fuel filter uses a "hairpin" clip retainer. Spread the two hairpin
clip legs about 1/8 in. (3mm) each to disengage
it from the fitting, then pull the clip outward. Use finger pressure
only; do not use any tools. Push the quick connect fittings onto the
filter ends. Mazda recommends that the retaining clips be replaced
whenever removed. The fuel tubes used on these fuel systems are
manufactured in 5/16 in. and 3/8
in. diameters. Each fuel tube takes a different size hairpin clip, so
keep this in mind when purchasing new clips. A click will be heard when
the hairpin clip snaps into its proper position. Pull on the lines with
moderate pressure to ensure proper connection. Start the engine and
check for fuel leaks. If the inertia switch (reset switch) was
disconnected to relieve the fuel system pressure, cycle the ignition
switch from the OFF to ON position several times to re-charge the fuel system before attempting to start the engine.

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

The fuel filter is located on the right hand side of the car .It is under a plastic shield just in front of the rear right side wheel .
In some cars of mazda 3 the
filter on Mazda 3 models is part of the fuel pump assembly.
The fuel filter on all 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.
Open the hood and locate the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is not in the engine compartment, follow the fuel line from the tank until the fuel filter is located. Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
