Mahle KL 97 filter size question

Post by ThePluralofMoose » Sat May 23, 2020 10:15 am

Hi all planning on doing a fuel filter swap on my new project ‘99 s70 NA, not the first time I’ve done this job but I ran into an issue.
Purchased a Mahle fuel filter and was sent these: anyone have any idea what they’re for? Clearly much smaller than the filter I’m aiming to change.

So strange, I usually buy from rock auto and their parts section is done by make, year, model, engine, so there’s rarely, if ever, a problem with mismatched parts from year to year or fitment. These are like motorcycle sized filters, very odd for them to even have listed.
