C5 fuel filter location

Post by Szormoksegg »

Hi folks!

Does anybody know where can I find the fuel filter on a petrol Citroën C5 V6 3.0L 2001? I checked the underbody and engine bay, but I didn't find it. (sorry for the amateur question)

Thanks in advance for any help you are able to provide.

There was one fitted inline between the fuel tank and pipes, but only for countries designated with ‘dusty’ atmospheres. For those with ‘normal’ atmospheres there isn’t one shown.

Item (6) on the second diagram shows the filter where fitted.
