Changing Boxster fuel filter


Recommended Posts

Greetings.

2001 Boxster. Getting ready for some end-of-season maintenance before putting the baby away at the end of October. Figured while the car is jacked up and I'm changing oil, I'd change the fuel filter. I have the instructions from the Bentley manual, but just curious about one thing: when I break everything lose, is the fuel feeding the filter under any great pressure, or any pressure at all? Am I going to be drenched in a shower of gasoline, or is this pretty straight forward, and I just need to have some rags/small pan to catch some light flows until I get the new filter on and be quick about it?

Thanks!

Bill

I don't know about in a 2001, but in my 2004, the filter and pump were all one unit. It was an easy replacement, BTW. No pressure in the tank. I did not have the proper tool to remove the ring, but was able to improvise easily. Also replaced the gasket around the ring at the same time.

RFM has some instructions out here somewhere that were spot on.

Thanks. Yea, in 2001, there is a dedicated fuel filter on the bottom of the car. I belive 2003 and after, the filter no longer needs changed (unless it's plugged) and is a part of the fuel pump assembly in the tank.
