I was under the impression you didn't get a replaceable filter for the 1.8, and that you replaced the whole sender/filter unit in a oner.
Lol I hope not I've ordered it already

Did they agree to fit it for £60 or did you hint ?

i asked them how much they would charge me to do it, they were a bit reluctant because they wanted to check the part was genuine, which it was (COX)

you have to get to the fuel filter from the inside of the car, you need to remove the center console and there is a metal plate held with four screws remove that and the filter is underneath

I might be wrong because at the end of the day mines a diesel but of all petrol cars i have owned the picture you are showing looks to me like the fuel tank pump and sits in the fuel tank usually accessed through the floor of the car

I done this on a 1.4 civic last week. There is good info on a previous thread. You have to put the o rings that come with the new filter on the fuel pump
and fuel regulator , take these off existing one, there is a video guide worth a watch. The fuel regulator fitted at bottom must be fully pushed home and
held in place with the retainer clip. Mine popped out and had to get towed home and after some headache redone job and found fault. The pump also
has an o ring with a similar push fit. I used my existing screwed ring at top and line up marks on car body & filter housing. it is also a good idea to mark
existing ring position before slackening for refitting.
