The Petrol/Fuel Filter on any car is an item that should be replaced as part of the regular servicing schedule.

We only replaced this one though after a car breakdown where the car engine had become staved of fuel! Although the breakdown man said a replacement fuel pump was needed, we believe it was the fuel filter and petrol pump filter that were clogged enough to have caused the problem and when we tested the pump ouselves that still seemed to work fine, although we did replace the petrol pump anyway as a matter of due course.

The petrol filter on the car was a Unipart one that had been fitted some years ago during a garage service.

We were searching for another replacement, and although the Unipart items were cheap at around 9 (late 2013 price), it seemed the Genuine MG-Rover part actually came in lower at around 8. Other aftermarket makes were all around 7 upwards. So not much it it pricewise.

On checking though it seemed the MG-Rover petrol filters were now a little scarce on the ground, fortunately 1 local MG-Rover parts dealer had 1 in stock :)

Removing the old petrol filter was a bit of a doddle on the 820, a quick waggle and squeeze is all it seemed to take, but although it's the exact same part on the 825, the one on the 825 looks like it would be a lot harder with so many other things going on around it!

The in-line petrol/fuel filter looks easily accessible from here.

A new Genuine MG-Rover Fuel Filter(WJN101250EVA) was purchased.

Cheap at around 8, although it seems that the original OEM ones are now getting a little short in supply, but don't worry as with most other Rover items in short suply aftermarket items are always readily available.

We are not sure how the fuel pipes come off the fuel filters, but it seems a quick, pull, squeeze, shake and tug might of had something to do with it!
