Can someone in easy to understand terms tell me what I need to change the fuel filter and how I go about it?

Thanks!

Easy, jack up right rear of car high enough to give you access, and install safety block.
Fuel filter is just in front of right rear tire. It has a plastic cover held in place by small bolt, I think it takes a 8mm socket and ratchet to remove. Remove the cover, then disconnect the fuel lines. The fuel lines are quick connect lines, look at the connector and you will see the plastic retaaining piece that has be pushed in to release the line. You push in on the retainer while pulling the line away from the filter. Same for other end. A rag wrapped around line and filter will keep fuel spray out of your face. You should now be able to slide the filter out of the holder. Reverse to install. The lines just push back on till they click, give a quick pull to make sure they are on good.

Today I replace fuel filter, it is like SuzukiDon sed but I must add some things...

First take out el.fuse for fuel pump(15A from fuse comp. under the hood), start car, end let it burn all fuel. Then crank for 5-10sek more. Now fuel line has no pressure ;)

About fast connectors, on one side is flat surface which has to pop out, and on the other there are two holes from which you pop-out it with small flat screw driver. After that lockin part is out, you just pull off fuel line from filter. Be awere that there is petrol in filter which will go out if you turn it.

Good luck!
;)

Just to add...
Service interval for fuel filter is 45oookm(3rd service). On first service they replace me fuel filter becouse our petrol is bad(service statemant), so after 30000 I shouldnt change it, but I did and problem with engine stoped.
Problem was, during driveing sometimes it can be heard like one cyl. didnt fire or didnt get fuel, but when u press gas pedal it dont stoll, like with cloged filter.
4000km before I add injector cleaner in the gas tank. It might be cleaning tank and filling filter, who know...I will change this filter before 30000km...45K my ass...

Sorry to bring up such an old thread but I can not find the fuel filter for the life of me. Does anyone have a picture of where it is located or can give me a more detailed description of it. Thank you in advance

filter

when removing the line from the filter, there was a black solid rubber seal like piece on the old filter, the new one did not have one, is that not supposed to be in the housing that clips back onto the filter? i could not get it back into the grey housing far enough to pop the line back on to click and get the white clip in so i left it off; the line is pressurized and has not leaked to my knowledge, there is no gas puddle under when i park like there was on the old rusty one i pulled off...???

I'd like to add to be very careful with the fuel line retention clips, they break very easily and are hard to replace whether it be by auto parts outlets or a Suzuki dealership.

If you do break one and cannot seem to replace it with a genuine Suzuki clip, a universal Ford / GM 5/16 or 3/8 (depending on the size of your line) retainer clips will work, just match them up with your clip. ;)
