Looks like the little strainer you get in the oil feed pipe to a turbo.

You get similar filters inside fuel tanks, attached to the tap on motorcycles and lawnmowers!

Well the only Turbo engine I have stripped etc was the XM.....BUT..... there is not a filter listed in the parts list for the 2.1 TD XUD11BTE which is fitted in my car or the early XUD11ATE (the parts engine).

It's not a Xantia one either from diagrams. Surely those would be circular filters anyway and not vertical filters. It almost looks like one side of the 'cone' shaped filter in an LHM tank, but it's not that.

The ma in law had a gas cooker that kept fading out, I found that it had just such a filter on the input pipe, blocked with rust from the rusty old iron mains.
