    Right every now and again when i start the car mostly from cold i get a slight wine for about a second.. Am i right in thinking this is the fuel filter and it needs replacing?

    Personally I wouldn't have said it was anything to do with the fuel filter.
    Sounds more like a pulley / tensioner to me.
