There is a fuel filter on the left side over the engine. Part# 996 110 253 52 about $40.00. Located just beside the coolant reservoir. There is a way to lower the engine about 2 to 4 inches to give you more space. ......

The build in the tank fuel filters (MY 02>) return less fuel system covers Carrera/Boxster M96 engines. Turbo's still had the conventional system.

Thanks

Model Year...better for identifying the car specs as the purchase year could be different.

Can anyone give me some tips re getting the holder off the expansion tank. I can just about get my finger tips to the plastic clip underneath the filter. I push it up towards the filter but it doesn't seem to want to come free.

Is there an easier way ?
