STOP, it's fuel filter time! (pics)

So i decided to tackle the fuel filter today.

Under the rear seat, driver side w/ metal plate removed (held in place with 3 plastic 10mm bolts)


Fuel Pump Assembly


Here is the New Fuel Filter


But what is this then??? what filter is this???


I originally thought this was the fuel filter, but when i ordered from sewell, they sent me the black plastic piece.

It sits below, attached to the fuel pump.


and here is faithful Titan, knowing he is no help so he'd best just do what he does best, chill...

Hahaha, nice dog! Reminds me of our old German Shepard.

The thing you see is the fuel pump sock. I guess it keeps big chunks of debris from getting sucked up.

Did you notice any difference after the change?

I don't know if I have to change mine, but me and my friend changed it on a NA AW11, the difference is night and day as it's already 20+ years old and it's still stock... when it's on the stock filter, we can get it barely off the line as fast as student drivers, and that's when we are flooring it, slipping the clutch from higher rpm was actually faster than flooring the car.

ok so update.

after the install, i filled up with gas... strange, the dial would only reach a little past 3/4 of a tank even if its completely full

saturday, i finally had a spare hour to take a look.

1) remove seat
2) remove 3 plastic 10mm nuts
3) remove 8 8mm bolts
4)unplug everything

found the problem, the clip that holds the fuel line to the fuel pump assembly had the 2 flang part facing outward. that i donno 5-10mm of metal put pressure on the whole assembly so it was tilted towards one of the baffles in the tank... that was enough to screw around with the tank floater, which sends the signal to ur instrument cluster how much gas u have.

put everything back together, bam, fixed!

rule of thumb, put everything, EXACTLY the way u found it, including the fuel line clip! EXACTLY.,...

any difference, not really, maybe a little bit better throttle response, and maybe when climbing hills

i guess my fuel filter wasnt all that dirty, but hard to say when the car is used, i donno if the previous owner had changed it, so i might as well!
