    Hi readers, just purchased an accord tourer 2.2ctdi and was wonderin what fuel filter to get. Got air and oil filters along with castrol edge 0-30. The motor factors I use told me there were two sorts of fuel filter on there system and they couldn't tell me which one I needed. Also, to save me lookin any harder, could a kind person tell me where abouts the fuel filter is?! Thanks in advance.

    If your car was made from 2006 onwards then the filter is made by Denso. Prior to 2006 it was made by Bosch. Always buy a genuine Honda filter, it seems that non Honda parts can cause problems and theres not that much difference in price anyway.
    The filter is fixed to the bulkhead and to the right of the engine as you look at it from the front, just behind the air filter. You should be able to see the rubber priming bulb on top of it

    *** Edit looks like Zoran just beat me to it with a much better reply****
