rexazz2 WIND GOOSE CHASE ALERT

picked up a replacement at Napa part #4419 ... same as Wix filter
It came with a instruction sheet .... directing me under the hood cowl area UGH
Its definately not under the hood on the 2014

Not sure about curving the filter to go back in
You will never know if it straightens itself out once back in
Think the next time I will move the vent as described in early posts

If you know the trick -- like folding in the center...

Yes, changed the oil and rotated the tires a couple weeks ago, replaced the cabin air filter and wiper blades, then got a mini-detail done. It sure is nice when the girl is looking good...

The first time took me about 10 minutes but this time only about 5 minutes. The video from the Vietnamese guy that's been linked here several times is great and I highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing this themselves to check it out. The fold in the middle trick is the hot setup. It took more time to pull the old filter than install the new one and re-installing the door took almost as long.

I also replaced the front wipers with OEM blades.

Ha! Doesn't surprise me. I siphoned the gas out of my '88 Bronco's tank before dropping it for a swap of the fuel pump. I THOUGHT it was mostly empty. As soon as I got the bolts out I was laying on the ground with a 33 gallon gas tank that seemed half full sitting on me. It was...fun.

But I think $200 for a new pump isn't so bad. I think I paid about $350 for a new pump and tank for my Bronco. The tank wasn't all too expensive, either. Maybe $65.

henryd1981 I replaced my cabin air filter yesterday with a Carquest brand filter. Still mystified as to why it's located in such an awkward place. It was easier to changed in my old Elantra.

I'll have to change the one on my mother's 2012 Nissan Rogue soon. Apparently, it's in a similar location to the Focus, but this time, it's on the driver's side.

There is an old mechanic's trick that will sometimes get an in tank fuel pump working again. I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee that I had not driven in a while and the electric pump was stuck and inoperative. A couple of blows to the fuel tank with a rubber mallet and the pump started singing. Never failed again. I thought I was going to have to drop the tank so I got lucky.

Some cars have access ports under the back seat to get at the in tank pump without having to drop the tank. We are not so lucky with the MK3 so yes, it is an expensive repair.

I would like to see the look on the service writer's face when you ask him if they installed your new fuel filter as part of the $179 special and then show him a picture of the in tank fuel pump with integrated fuel filter...

"Do you need to keep my car a little longer to complete the rest of the work you advertised in your special?"
