Pls fellow Fiatees, need advice

Good day all
I'm new here and desperately seeking some folks help and advice.
I have a 2011 Fiat Strada 1.4 Working (I realize it's not sold in many parts of the world) so hopefully a fellow saffer can assist.

I have serviced the vehicle at least 3 times since ownership and for the life of me I cannot find the fuel filter for the vehicle
I've been told differant location each time by differant Fiat dealerships. (So they dont know themselfs).
I can assure you it's not in the engine bay, it's not under the plastic cover which runs down the underbelly of the vehicle.
The way I see it, it can only be in the fuel tank or just outside it, making it very hard to get to

If any fellow forumers know I would really appreciate your input.

Thks all

Hi, Welcome to the FF.

The parts catalogue shows pictures of it, but doesn't show where it is.

Thks Devran
By the looks of this insert , it may be in engine bay, possibly right next to throttle body.
I will look again.
Thks again

Re: Pls fellow Fiatees, need advice

If it's a petrol engine, it probably has a "lifetime" filter IN the fueltank...
Pictures above show the diesel filter.

Re: Pls fellow Fiatees, need advice

Hi Peter
you know I also thought that this appeared to be a filter for a diesel vehicle because of the electric cable attached to it, but wasn't sure.
I rechecked last night in the engine bay and I am sure there is no filter there.
Do you get life time filters in the tank?

Thks for your input

Re: Pls fellow Fiatees, need advice

If its a 2011 motor, i would say its a lifetime filter in the tank. If not it wiuld usually be under the rear sill before the wheel arch... near the brake lines
