2001 V70 2.5 TDi Fuel Filter Replacement - Engine Bay

Post by Phaedrus68 » Sat Feb 21, 2015 9:13 am

Hi Guys.

Searches on here and on the www have yielded me no luck.

My V70 is a 2001 model registered in late 2000. I've just done a bit of work last weekend - front brake pads, new oil & filter, new air filter, and bodged up an exhaust bracket after original lugs corroded away.

I'd also bought a fuel filter, but couldn't locate it - my Haynes manual doesn't cover my model. It's NOT under the car in front of the rear wheel, where it seems to be on every V70 but mine.

Google and my helpful local(ish) Volvo dealer informed me that the fuel filter on my model is located at the back left of the engine bay, between the brake fluid reservoir and the suspension mount (see attached pic).

So I'm about to tackle the job this weekend, and would appreciate any advice regarding removing old and fitting new - what bolts or nuts to remove, what order to do it in, what to watch out for.

If there are any tutorial descriptions or videos out there, I'd love to see them.


Thanks,

Mark
