    Re: Jaguar X-Type Fuel Filter Location.

    Good question? I'm thinking about swapping mine for a new one at we have 41k on the clock. But, I'm guessing the fuel filter is in the gas tank and would require a complete teardown costing $800 or more the replace. From what I understand that's where the the fuel gauge sending unit and fuel pump are located.

    My escape has these units in the tank. Access to tank under left rear seat. Takes all of five minutes to flip the seat up and to screw the lid off the tank from inside the passenger cabin. Yeh, Ford. Someone was thinking ahead in their engineering dept.

    Re: Under Pass side rear

    The fuel filter is located under the rear passenger side in front of the rear tire. About a 2" dia can about 4" long. Get one at a local auto parts store. $5

    Simple for me , I have a lift in my garage so just put it up in the air and walk under and change the filter. Maybe a 1/2 hr job.

    How do you stop the fuel from passing through the filter without it spilling everywhere when you remove the filter to put in the new one? Never done this before but I can access that area to change it out.

    There will not be to much fuel to spill. Just keep a bed pan under the filter when you remove it and let it spill into it. Maybe a 1/2 cup full.

    Great. Do you know exactly what tools are needed to get the job done? I want to make sure I have them.

    You're right Jaguy. Thst is definitley where the fuel filter is located. I manage a Oil and Lube shop and I've replaced numerous fuel filters and they're all in the same place.

    Re: Under Pass side rear

    Is there a way of getting to it without having to lift the car up? It seems simple to change and I'd rather do it myself or have a local garage do it for $40.

    Baldie,
    It will be a fairly tight squeeze without lifting the vehicle up a bit and you will most likely get a little shot of petrol in the face. It can be done, but you might want to look into a cheap pair of ramps to raise it up a bit. It'll be well worth your money, especially if you want to do anymore work on the underside. It's a fairly easy task to do.

    If you're buying ramps, make sure that they are not too steep otherwise the bodywork will foul them before the wheels get onto the ramp. I use a couple of 8" x 2" planks and blocks of wood to get a bit more room.
