Hi,
I need to change the fuel (diesel) filter to my C3, 1,6 Hdi 2007. Is it something I can do myself? And where is the filter situated? Is it difficult to get at?
Grateful for advice!

The steps to replace the diesel fuel filters on the DV4/DV6 engines are in this forum post

Its an easy job, less steps when done with changing the air filter as some of the steps are duplicated doing each job separately ;)

Citroen C3 1.6 HDi fuel filters available here.

Diesel 1.6 and 1.4 16v Fuel Filters at Euro Car Parts


There are some pictures of the fuel filter in situ in this post

I have changed the filter now (together with airfilter and oil filter, coupéfilter and oil). The step by step instructions was spot on. :D
