Default 2013 MC Mondeo Wagon Deisel fuel filter Location????

I wish to replace the fuel filter on a 2013 Mondeo wagon, i tohught the filter housing was underneath but cant seem to find it, i rang a ford dealer and was told lift engine cover and look down near droivers side., did that and can only find the fuel pump?
I searched the Web but it doesn't cover wagons,
Any ideas as to where to look?

also on the filter purchase scene amazing on the prices I got. Repco $96, Bursons $56 and Genuine Ford from ford dealer $32!!!!! some one is trying to make big $$ on filters.

wagon diesel fuel filter is underneath down the back in the centre line of the vehicle (as much as it can be said).

unless you've got it in the front engine bay area:

Also on prices, yeah some are ridiculous, my local Ford aren't that bad on AFL98 oil filters (and cabin filters $20 charcoal filter) but fuel filters are more costly. Stupidcheap/Autobarn/Repco are crap on all filters Ryco F$77 O$44 A$70 wtf?.

since bought filters OS to see me well into the future for like GBP$3-6
Engine Oil ~$80 to $104 for 10L

This is how it is in my car.
This video has it in the same location as mine just has a different shield over it.

I'm guessing its sorted by now but the fuel filter is on the drivers side of the engine block under a metal cover.
  • Remove cover
  • Disconnect fuel lines and return line
  • Remove 4xTorq screws holding top of filter housing.
  • Gently pry up top of housing (there is a little recess to get a screw driver in on each side).
  • Remove filter.
  • Check residual diesel at bottom of housing for crap/water traces (I usually use an oil extractor and drain this completely)
  • Refill filter housing with clean diesel (this can be done after filter housing top is installed through a small screw)
  • Refit filter and re-install housing top
  • Refit fuel lines
  • At this stage I use the extractor to draw fuel from the return line until it flows (I never think to have fresh diesel to fill the filter housing) then re-attach
  • Start and check for leaks

NOTE the fuel filter is different to the one used under the back of the car (changed size 6/2012 or so)
