    Forgot to mention I bought the fuel filter from Holdcroft for only £31 and fitting it myself saved me around £120 compared to having it done at Honda :nodding:

    Only problem I had was my reaction to petrol - it turns my stomach ever since I got a siphon going and 'miscalculated' a suck and got a right gob-full of the stuff which was pretty unpleasant. Still, my mates were rolling around in hysterics so at least I provided entertainment!

    Hi.
    Not having had petrol car for many years This guide would help many replace the filter/sender. However having been in a similar positions with a diesel it is advised to de-pressurise the fuel system completely (varies from manufacturer to manufacturer) first to alleviate the ensuring fuel spill, then there is only a small amount which drips from the fuel lines which was the case last time I did one. I'm sure that would be simple to achieve!

    You could leave the fuel cap out for the duration of the fuel filter change that will de-pressurised the system. I do recommend after the cap is removed leave poor 5 minutes them put a cloth over the mouth to stop anything getting in.

    I did leave it open for the duration but still fired out was that due to have half a tank of fuel or is there anything else that can be done?

    Hi Guy.
    Just did a quick google and the following steps may have helped!
    1. Disable the fuel pump-remove fuse if you can find it.
    2. Open fuel filler cap-you did that.
    3. Turn over engine for several second, it should not start due to lack fuel pressure.
    4. IMPORTANT DISCONNECT BATTERY, DON'T WANT ANY STRAY SPARKS WITH FUEL TANK/LINES OPEN.
    5. Carry out work.
    6. Enable fuel pump and turn ignition on to pressurize system.
