Fuel filter question.
« on: October 28, 2013, 12:15:35 PM »
Hi all, i\'m wanting to do a general service on my recently purchased rx7 (will post pics up and introduce myself properly soon :) )

I have been into my local mazda dealer and they have informed me that they have never sold nor stocked an OEM fuel filter for the FD lol!

Am i safe to buy non OEM fuel/oil filters from euro car parts or ebay or is it best to try and find somewhere that sells genuine OEM filters?

Thanks.

If I was you I'd buy an aftermarket filter, relocate it somewhere accessible as the stock one is a PITA to change.
