Fuel Filter Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys and Girls,

I'm wanting to change my fuel filter (Toyota quoted me $220), and from what I have read it's through the rear floor under the seat.

Is it a simple process?

Could I do it in half hour?

I did see an old thread, there was a link too but the thread was vague and the link won't work for me.

Going of past experiences with other vehicles,

you take out the lower part of the rear seat,

Disconnect the wiring harnes and open the access panel,

remove the pump, then remove the filter,

install the new filter and start putting it back together in the reverse order.

would that be the correct method?

have I missed something?

You have missed the safety steps:

Always have a fire extinguisher handy.

Disconnect the harness then start the car to remove fuel and fuel pressure from the lines. I also loosen the fuel cap.

Disconnect the battery.

Keep all heat sources well away and avoid static clothing.

You will also need to source all o-rings and pump seals within the filter/pump assembly. If you do not, then you will risk hard starting issues. Ignore at your own risk.

You will very soon see that it is far more fiddly and time consuming than you were expecting.

My apologies, yes obviously it's more involved then what I summarised, there is alway safety steps, but my point was it only took about half an hour to do so.

and if that's the case, Toyota can just have it. It they burn it down I get another car, if I burn it down I have to buy another car.

I recall the replacement fuel filter is around $200. (parts only)

Correct me if I'm wrong.

If you're smart about it and shop around, you can do it for around $100, even using genuine parts.
