From what i've read online this morning, the fuel filter is a combined unit with the fuel pump, and is located inside the fuel tank...so replacing it sounds difficult and expensive.
I have a similar problem. My 2002 1.7 CDTI malfunction indicator light has just came on (bought the car 4 months ago) and the power level dropped to very low power, without being able to rev above about 2200 rpm.
I switched off, waited about 10 minutes, and power returned, but light stayed on...was ok for a mile or so, then revved hard and the problem returned (light stayed on all the time).
Lot's of people have been having the same problem looking at these forums. Not many posting solutions to the problem though unfortunately.
Some people are saying it might be a faulty turbo? Maybe that's your problem too?
