Help figuring out which V70 fuel filter I need?

Post by Paddy94 » Mon Apr 18, 2016 2:49 pm

Hey Guys.

Just about to have my car serviced (2001 V70 2.4) and I'm just trying to figure out which fuel filter I need. I've been checking my usual parts site and it shows two different sized filters, a bigger thick one and a smaller size one. I just need a little help in figuring which one will actually fit!


^Smaller size


^Bigger size.

Hope you guys can help me out :)

It looks like there is chassis number break on the fuel filter in the 2001 model year.

You will need your chassis number to fit the right one

THE FCP Euro website lists the two and the chassis numbers.
