thanks for the reply mate, I had a quick look earlier and the only thing in that area seems to be the dryer can for the air-con so I'm going to spend a bit more time tomorrow. Thanks again

I think Grosseberger is correct. I believe it is near the washer bottle and a bugger to get at. If you remove the o/s/f wheel and take off the plastic wheel arch liner you should see it on the right as you're looking into the wheel arch.

It is integrated inside the fuel gauge in the fuel tank. Not necessary to change it.

There are certain models up to certain year of production that has fuel filter. Others don't. It's a Renault thing. :mrgreen:

ya correct....
esp FL ones.
the fuel pump has:
1. fuel strainer
2. fuel pressure regulator
3. fuel gauge sending unit
4. pump motor.

all these f(n) in one unit....strainer is the filter.
