i have read on this forum that some people recommend removal of the filter housing from bulkhead when changing the fuel filter on the carens, i changed mine yesterday and borrowed my fitter mates removal tool it took just a couple of minutes ,so anybody thinking of tackling this job just get your hands on a scissor style filter removal tool remove the air pipe at the air box and tuck it back and you can get right at it and spin it off !

Been a while since I've done one, but the older filters were just a midgets **** to long and hit the box when unscrewed.
