Default Anyone changed a fuel filter?

Anyone changed a fuel filter? I can't see a thread about it anywhere. If so, any problems?
Thanks, Malcolm.

Hi Malcolm,

On the Gen1 CRVs the fuel filter was an inline filter located on the firewall. It was relatively straightforward to change one out.

On the Gen2's the filter is located in the gas tank and is part of the fuel pump/fuel gauge sender unit. The unit can be accessed without having to remove the fuel tank via an access panel under the right hand rear seat. However, to swap it out isn't a minor matter.

It takes a special tool to remove the locknut on the unit...it has to fit into the hole in the floor and fit the large locknut. The tool kinda looks like an oil filter tool.

Here's what the unit looks like..



As far as I know there aren't any videos of changing one out. I didn't even find any reports or write ups about someone doing it. Mostly there was chit chat about whether it necessary or even possible, and whether the UK units were different than the US versions, here, here, here, here and here.

If you do happen to do the one in your V, be sure to take some pics and do a write up.

Take care.

Thanks for that. I've always done the basics on my previous motors but I'm not a mechanic and I've never seen a fuel filter like this before. Now I can see how it goes together (more or less) and how to get to it I'll give it a go. There's usually a work around not having the right tools, so I'll let you know how I get on with the locknut and take some pics as I go.

Thanks for the pics. It's interesting to see what the replacement parts look like.

I did some searching and found a description of how the fuel pump unit would be replaced on a CRV which has the unit in the fuel tank...eHow: How to Replace a Fuel Pump in a Honda CR-V.

Quote:
Difficulty: Moderately Challenging

Things You'll Need:
Fuel pump kit
Shop towel
Socket wrench set
Tool 07AAA-S0XA100
Torque wrench

Instructions
Step 1. Determine the fuel pump that your Honda CR-V will require. This depends on the make and model and engine size of your vehicle. Models made from 1996 to 2001 have a 2.0 L B20B or B20Z engine and models made after 2001 may be equipped with a 2.0 L, 2.2 L turbodiesel or 2.4 L engine.

Step 2. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Access the fuel pump by taking out the rear seat and removing the maintenance access cover. Unplug the fuel pump's electrical connection, fuel supply line and fuel return line. Cover the connector and pipe with plastic and have a towel handy to soak up excess fuel.

Step 3. Disconnect the fuel pump by removing the fuel pump locknut with tool 07AAA-S0XA100. Discard the gasket and O-ring.

Step 4. Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, especially the gasket and O-ring. Tighten the fuel pump locknut to 69 foot pounds with tool 07AAA-S0XA100 and a torque wrench.

Step 5. Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure.
The process and tool used seems fairly common for lots of Honda models. I saw some for Civics which mentioned alignment marks. Odds are there are some for the CRV too, so you might watch for them.

That sounds like quite a bit of torque. You might have some problems getting the lock ring loose or getting it tight enough when buttoning things up.

I did some searching for the tool 07AAA-S0XA100. Looks like it's around $50-$80 US. Here's a US site, HondaPartsNow...
Honda Part 07AAA-S0XA100: Genuine Honda FUEL SENDER WRENCH

I found a pic of the took in this PDF. It mentions the part was updated to help prevent bending the tool when encountering a stubborn locknut....



Best o' luck with it.

Malcolm,

I don't know about the 2002, especially the 2002 UK version, but I suspect it's similar to the 2005 US. If so, I checked around and found there's a whole procedure for relieving the fuel pressure.

I sent you a private message about it. Hint: you'll find the link to your private messages near the upper right corner of the forum pages.

Why do you want to change it? Do you suspect tampering/vandalism with your fuel or know that you have had a tank of bad fuel?

There is no reason to change it otherwise.

84 0000 mile service. I've had the car about a year, the last service was done by an independent garage, and I'm not too confident in what they did. I've had to change the dual pump fluid, and now I've realized the oil filter is leaking. If I change the sparks and all the filters and fluids myself, then I know where I am.

A fuel filter change is not part of any service on your CR-V, unless the pump goes bad or you suspect tampering or bad fuel.
