Never changed the fuel filter
Do all the other regular maintenance but not that.
Not too sure on the full procedure.

You can enlighten me if you want

Usually get it changed every 2 years about 25,000 KMs max. just to keep some contact up with the local dealer (not that they give a monkeys)

Have made enquiries as to price for new complete unit after reading about melt down / failures from a couple of guys on a forum over here.
As it comes with fuel filter attached may just go ahead and order one with some discount. + check out the cost of a new sensor
Will let you know if it comes with an updated metal housing. I imagine it would.

Fuel filter is pretty easy.. you have to take off the main bracket attached to the chassis and it all just falls out as this grips the filter itself. Little tricky tightening the filter clamp when reassembling but not that hard.
I've not posted pics for a while but will try now and load some of the steering hoses.. the first tow pics are of a brand new late model from underneath with my edits to show where things are:

You wont have the clips seen on the xmember.. so this is what I did:


This is what the leak looks like... the pipe connection to the pump is the culprit..it gets a hairline crack in it (barely visible when you take it off). you can see the drip (red oil): photo is rotated left..sorry (I can see your head going sideways now )

Thats an informative picture thanks
Going to be a clear day tomorrow but cold so intending to inspect the rear offside brake as its getting a little warm occasionally
Probably the caliper (got one handy with banjo bolt & washers ready)
Will take a look at that pipe on the power steering to familiarise myself with location in case of future issues
