    I've literally just changed my fuel filter but I seem to have slightly different components, is this guide for the 2 litre or face lift one? General principles the same though and was a very helpful guide. Many thanks!

    Graham, The filter change was on a tourer the saloon fuel filter are different so hence the variation. Prefacelift and facelift filters have no differences on both saloon and tourer.

    Ah! Why is that if I may ask?

    It's some job compared to the Mondeo which was open access in the bonnet and simply pull out three pipes and replace the canister! Although, it did cross my mind that if any of the other components fail which are attached to the fuel filter it is reasonably easy access to get to them and change.

    The saloon one has a different design i will try to pull an image out

    Yeah that is true in years gone by even my first gen it has a standalone electric fuel pump outside the fuel tank attached to the standalone fuel filter which was easily replaced.

    The 7th Generation fuel filter design was made with an aim to reduce fuel permeation and increase overall efficiency by reducing parts something like 20 to 14 and get rid of the fuel return pipe and resin fuel tanks (Saloon). Tourer have steel tanks internally coated with I think with a SnZN plated coating which is lead free..

    The fuel pump on both variants is the fuel tank the fuel keeps the motor cool. :Wink:

    Hi guys, I've got a question. Hopefully someone knows is it normal or not... :Unknown: Just a week ago I've changed fuel filter and now I'm noticing much more of fuel fume coming out when opening the fuel cap. It seems pressure there is much stronger than it used to be. Is this normal?

    I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. It would make sense to release more petrol vapour in the summer when the ambient temperature is higher, but not now.
    Maybe one of the petrol owners can give you a better response.

    I'm honestly not sure either, I've had my fuel filter to change for 10 months now (and have the part too) :Whistle:

    @SpeedyGee might have some thoughts.
