Q: Changing fuel filter on my Accord

asked by on

How do I change the fuel filter on a 2007 Accord?

The fuel filter on your car is located inside the fuel tank, and is not an easily serviceable item. In order to replace it, parts of the interior need to be removed, the fuel tank needs to be drained and the entire fuel pump assembly needs to be removed. Afterwards, the tank must be properly resealed and checked for leaks. It is a much larger job than it was on older cars. If the fuel filter needs to be changed I strongly suggest that you have a professional, such as one available from YourMechanic, perform a fuel filter replacement.
