    i did a fuel filter change the other day one workd... what a killer! the fuel filter is located on the drivers side about 1/4 of the way down the sil if you put your head under about a foot away from the back wheel you will find it.

    it has a clipped pipe going in and a clipped pipe going out! i spent hours trying to work out how to disconnect the pipe but really couldnt work it out! in the end i managed to snap one of the clips but they both came off in the end! if you want my honnest opinion get some fuel hosing from halfords and cut the clips off and jubelee the new hose onto the fuel filter!
    i will try take some pictures of what i mean if i have a chance tonight, drop us a pm if you want them!

    i dont know if there is a proper way to get the fuel pipe clips off as i couildnt figure it out at all! i think you have to put a screwdriver in the 2 holes and push the clip out!

    A3 Hi the pollen filter on your A3 is located on the nearside if you open the bonnet and look at the plenumb chamber cover there is a little flap that lifts up and the filter is behind there.
    A6 the pollen filter is behind the glove compartment just remove the plastic under panel slide the cover out the way and remove the filters there are 2 stacked on top of each other it sounds strange but once removed you will be able to see what I mean its simple!!

    fuel filter replacement:

    Just be careful with the clip. There is a small trick to remove unclip the hose without the use of any tool. Take you time, if needed, depressurize the fuel system (remove the fuse) and wait for 30mins.

    As for the the pollen filter, it's very easy mate. As red-line explained above.

    Hope this helps
    ^^ In my opinion

    Sorry I read in this forum on the A3 2005 the pollen filter is behind the glove box?

    Or is it in the bonnet?
