    Would this vehicle have 4 or 6 cylinders? What capacity too? 2.0 2.2 2.7 or 3.0.

    They all appear to be under the bonnet.

    Front of engine, driver's side, high up. A large black cap with a hex top on the RHR engine. It takes a bit of force because of the O ring, so use a hex socket. There was a tool thread on this. The fuel lines lead in and out.

    Not sure about the 4 cyl diesels, but the 3.0l V6 HDi I owned also had a fuel filter attached to the rear vertical surface of the fuel tank. i know because it fell off!! Fortunately the fuel leak was minor, but Citroen replaced the fuel tank, filter and mounting under warranty.

    Cheers

    Engine bay as described above. Use gentle pressure undoing the filter top, not sudden force. Same as removing the oil filter cover.

    I bought a half inch drive six sided impact 27mm socket and then used the grinder to make some small U indentations so it sat down better on the top of the fuel filter. This was after I almost took all the edges off the nut using a normal ring spanner.
