I've read about this in a few places on these forums. It's INSIDE the tank. Not something done while you're letting your oil drain . . .

Oh dear, thanks for that, looks like it's a fairly big job, if the petrol and the diesel are the same.

I had a diesel Merc, and after changing something in the fuel system it needed bleeding, which was just cranking the engine for a minute until it starts and that's it, is the Mazda the same?

It's easy to replace fuel filter for Mazda6 diesel. Remove two bolts that holds filter box, remove two hoses (in/out) and cable. Take "box" out, replace new filter, put back and connect everything again. Operate manual fuel pump till it gets stiffen. And that's all.. Main fuel filter is "under hood", not in tank...

Finally found mine. In under the windscreen behind the soundproofing, directly back from the battery. (RHD car).

I'm also needing to change mine.
Does anyone have pics, or is there a tutorial on this.
