Does the 16-18 RS have a replaceable fuel filter? If so, where is it located? I'd like to replace it, if it is replaceable.
I've looked around and couldn't find much info.

The install guide shows you where the OE fuel filter is located.

If you're just doing an OEM replacement, make sure the new one has the two new plastic clips. Passenger side in front of rear wheel.

From what they said from the site:



Because the Radium filter is less restrictive than the OEM Ford filter, there is less stress put on the fuel pump (3-5.5psi less). Lower pre filter pressures will permit less current draw and thus less fuel temperature. Furthermore, this phenomenon permits an increase in fuel flow. The red marks below represent one aftermarket pump and the purple marks denote 2 aftermarket pumps. Note that there is a 2% and 4.5% flow increase, respectively.

Is it not listed in the service manual you get with the car?
It has most of the intervals for everything else.....

Unfortunately not on the US owners manual or supplement guide. iIRC it says we have an "internal" fuel filter that is good for life.

I'll follow most of the UK owners and do it 30K.
