Re: Renault Twingo MK2 1.2L 75 (16V) Fuel filter

Hi, apparently it must have a fuel filter as when I went to the Renault distributor in Malta and gave him the chassis number, on the system it was being displayed as having a fuel filter and it must be somewhere near the tank area from the diagram i've seen on the monitor. However, I've inspected well under the car's bottom and couldn't find anything except for a box which has got some pipe vents, which according to the mechanic it's a kind of vaporizer. Could it be that it's in the tank itself or inside the car perhaps under the rear seats?

The fuel pump inside the tank will have a filter but to replace it you have to replace the whole tank unit - expensive and awkward.

It is not a servicable item unless something goes wrong with it.

If there is no signs of an external fuel filter then one was never fitted.
