Hi

If you go to Euro Car Parts site and enter your reg they should be able to match the parts to your C3.

IF you have a fuel filter it is located just in front of the rear driver side wheel and is "piggy backed" onto the carbon canister. There is NO service life on it and I do not recommend replacing it "on SPEC". However it's your car and your decision. From what I can tell most western European C3's of that era do not have an external fuel filter. HOWEVER If you do have a fuel filter and you wish to replace it, that appears to be the correct fit.
The only spark plugs I would recommend would be the BOSCH FR7DC+ as that is what Citroen specifies. The BOSCH FR7DP is a platinum replacement for the DC+ and I also recommend that.
BOSCH do not appear to produce an iridium plug to suit the TU1 engine (M14X19mm).
The NGK BKR6EIX-11 looks like an equivalent however I cannot recommend it as it is not specified by Citroen.
I have no data on the IK20TT and again can not recommend it.
The major problem with spark plug cross references is the heat range of the plugs. The numbers vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and some 'reverse' the heat range numbers. Too hot a plug will cause pinging (detonation) and too cold a plug will cause an incomplete burn of the fuel.
