    Default Citroen C5 2Lt Petrol 16v Fuel Filter

    Hi Fellow Frogers,

    I have a replacement Fuel Filter on the way to me,
    can anyone one give me any tips here?
    First thing I have to do is locate where it is on the car.
    Then just would like to check if there could be any surprises to look ouy for?

    It's under the car, loosen a bunch of the quarter turn fasteners and pull down the undershield tray on the driver's side - can be done with the car on high.

    Bit of petroleum jelly or clean motor oil on the spigots never hurts.

    Hi Keith,
    The hose connecters have push a "button", quick connect type fittings, if you have not seen them before.

    Hi Addo,
    still not found the fuel filter location. Would it be at the fuel tank end? or motor end?

    regards Keith

    From memory, more or less onder the rear passengers' feet. The undertray is a metal one, if you're really stuck open the bonnet and eyeball where your fuel lines come in against the firewall, follow it down then get underneath and pick up the trail. Be careful under the car, even an electric pumped CitroŽn might decide to slump down.

    Car is at my place, its a wagon, and I can't find the filter either, now the fuel lines follow the chassis into the under tray which is the usual one piece plastic cover from the firewall to the fuel tank with a myriad of screws and 6mm bolts. There is the usual tin cover over the bottom of the fuel tank but that's all. The fuel hose from the tank goes under the plastic tray at a level with the bottom of the tank.
    Should we be looking for a small separate cover [can't see one] or does it mean we have to loosen the full length cover and strain it down where the filter is? [when sighted]. It must be somewhere. Mystery.
    Tony.

    Yes, the long cover below the floor pan.

    Hi,
    I looked on the Citroen service site for insperation ?
    Interestingly there are two types of fuel piping arrangements. One for dusty atmosphere, which has a fuel filter. And another one for normal atmosphere which appears to NOT have a fuel filter ????? Certainly not under there !
    If in doubt the VIN could be used to clarify this.

    It's listed as a service part for that VIN.

    Hi Tony and Jaahn,

    It seems to be well protected under the car behind the shield, by the diagram.
    Hope I haven`t put you too much trouble Tony.
    cheers Keith

    Are your ears burning?

    What caught me out the first time was pulling down the tray causing a shower of retained gravel and dust in my face. From memory a rag under the coupling ends is good practice too - stops fuel running onto you.
