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.
Remove the "hairpin" clip retainers to access the fuel line fittingsThe inline reservoir type fuel filter should last the life of the vehicle under normal driving conditions. If the filter does need to be replaced, proceed as follows:
CAUTIONIf the fuel filter is being serviced with the rear of the vehicle higher than the front, or if the tank is pressurized, fuel leakage or siphoning from the tank fuel lines could occur. to prevent this condition, maintain the vehicle front end at or above the level of the rear of vehicle. also, relieve tank pressure by loosening the fuel fill cap. cap should be tightened after pressure is relieved.
