Fuel filter is located in the trunk.

1. Relieve fuel pressure
First start up the car in PARK. Open up the hood and pull the Fuel Pump Relay. It looks like a big green fuse. Do this as the car runs. Do not worry the car will stale. Crank engine a few times and turn off ignition switch. Put the relay back in. Disconnect negative battery cable.

2. Reach filter.
This is annoying unless you can fit comfortably in the trunk. Pull out the carpet cover and you will see a metal cover screwed down by 3 screws. Remove these and you will see the fuel filter.

3. Replace
Lay down some shop towels underneith the hoses connected at both ends of the filter as fuel will spill out. What I did was place forceps on each hose to minimize spillage. This is also why we releive fuel pressure so it doesn;t spray in your face. Hoses may be stuck onto filter so I took a very small flathead screwdriver and wedge it between the the hose and the filter nozzels so it will free itself from the filter. Becarful as the fuel filter is filled with fuel. Replace filter and follow your steps back.

Mazda millenia 2001 fuel line diagram

No idea to be honest ,their is a fuel pump in the tank with a gauze filter on the bottom that much i can tell you but i dont know if their is a inline fuel filter or where it is if one is fitted .The main problem i see on here with american market cars is the fuel ,in the EEC eythenol is limited to 5% but in america it can be as much as 20% and this causes problems as this eythenol is hydroscopic which means it absorbs water vapour out of the air hence fuel filter block ups are more frequent than what i see here in spain .Never have much cause to change a petrol fuel filter here and the odd diesel but only when the customer specificaly asks for it .drain the water out the bottom if any yes but change a filter very rarely.

Is the fuel filter for the 2000 mazda millenia located under the trunk or can it be accessed under the vehicle? And are there any special tricks i need to know to change this fuel filter?

Hello jfamily004: My name is Roger and I will answer for you. Open the trunk. pull the floor cover back at front of the trunk. Under the rear window area. You will see an access panel. Remove the screws and the cover. You will find the fuel filter under the cover. Before you remove the hoses remember that the fuel is under pressure. This should not require any special tools. Reverse your take off procedure to install the new filter.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer. This way I know the answer was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Can not find fuel filter for 1999 mazdz millenia

Access the filter thru the trunk. Pull the trunk carpet back near seat back. You'll see a plate with 3 screws, remove it and the filter is there. Relieve the fuel pressure first. Or replace after car has been sitting a while.

Fuel filter on a 1996 Mazda Millenia

The fuel filter is accessable from inside the trunk. remove the trunk carpet mat. You will notice a circular panel on the left side which is held to the trunk floor with two screws. remove the screws and panel and you will immediately see the fuel filter. When replacing the fuel filter, note the direction of fuel flow and Do Not Install The New Fuel Filter Backwards!
