Silly question maybe, but does the Trophy have a fuel Filter? My local Renault sold me one and i see over on CS that West Renault sell them.

Are they for 182's or lower spec cars?

Cheers,
Mike

from memory, they are inbuilt into the fuel tank. I tried to change one on my old 172 and think supplied ones are for lower spec clio or older models ?

Given the mileage on mine (130k) this will be one of the jobs I contemplate doing.

Any further information on this? Is there anything that can be done other than replacing the whole sender unit and seal?

Sorry if I’m being stupid so I need to spend £260 to swap fuel filter ?
Yes you need to spend that.

The fuel filter is part of the pump which is in the tank and is a lifetime fuel filter.

I would only change it if needed IMO.

The other thing you need to watch is if you unscrew the seal with fuel in the tank it can implode on itself and the tank can suck itself in.

Only change the filter / pump when tank has a minimum amount of fuel.

Ok thanks again for expanding on the subject.

Blimey ! that reminds me of my rs3 when they had ‘lifetime’ transmission oil , and then it would break at 100k. Seems like Renault just set the mileage that high so the cars would be out of warranty..

Has anyone removed the gubbins and fitted an external one on the fuel pipe ?
