I know this may sounds stupid, but where in the name of GOD is the fuel filter located in my 2005 S40 T5, 6Spd manual, Left-Hand Drive.<p>I removed the right-rear wheel but I found no fuel filter, where exactly is it ? do I need to remove the large mud shield behind the wheel ? <p>Thanks in advance

Re: Where the heck is that fuel filter (RobertoT5)

May i ask why you are trying to locate the filter? Most are intank and are not recommend for replacement i think around 105k or something really high like that. If i recall our warranty service inspection sheets thats what it was. Most volvos we do at 60k and its the inline filters.

I;m searching for the external fuel filter, not the one in the tank.<br>I need to perfrom the 160k maintanance program, I because I am a DYI guy plus we don't have Volvo dealers in our country, just some pathetic and disastrous car repair shops.<br>I am not letting my car on anyones hands <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">, its very risky. <br>

Re: (RobertoT5)

You sir have the highest mileage S40 ive ever seen lol. Most S40's dont have an external filter is what im trying to say but if you actually have found a replacement part ill have to check VIDA to see where the location would be. Normally volvo mounts them on the right side underneath the car in front of the RR wheel.

Lol, what can I say...Its like new <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">.<p>No problem at all, just a little noise in the front, probably some bushes, but I'm surprised they lasts that long on these "nuked" roads.<br>I had a cracked rear brake disc, that was the only major problem to name it like that, and thats all, just gas.<p>

Re: (mattdoc)

If you cant see it from underneath the vehicle then you dont have one. External filters are not on most S40's. The picture just shows it sitting in the same place as most other volvos on the right side underbody.

Re: (failurbydesign)

Many things could be to blame for that.... how many miles on your car and have you done all your volvo recommended services? Anything thats involved in the proper burn of your fuel will have an affect on your gas mileage. Thus air filter, spark plugs, fuel filter (if replacable), winter fuels, summer fuels, etc can change your gas mileage for the better or worse.

Re: (failurbydesign)

Could be related to the fuel used at your pumps... next time you fill up see if it says E10 on it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Means that its not pure gasoline, it has 10% ethonal which doesnt have as much of a powerful burn which requires more of it to produce the same that standard fuel creates.
