There is no serviceable fuel filter for the 2.3/2.4 petrol Captiva's as designed for life of vehicle, unlike the 2.2 Diesel that has filters that you can actually change.

Hi Ivan,

Does that mean that the fuel filter is housed in the tank?

Hi Fisherboy.

See if this helps you:

I discovered from an Opel (formerly an agent for Chevrolet) dealer here in Germany yesterday that this is no serviceable fuel filter installed in my car, just a small filter which is part of the fuel pump housed in the tank that does not need to be changed. Thanks anyway for your help.

This confirms the information given by Scouse-Mafia.

It's a good schematic of the fuel tank and its associated EVAP equipment. I've attached a shot of it with the charcoal canister coloured in red.As we've discussed on here before, when you "brim" the tank, liquid fuel - rather than fuel vapour - can find its way along the vent tube (No 9) and soak the charcoal canister which leads to it breaking up.

@gcmarcal do you happen to have a schematic of the Captiva diesel fuel tank?

Although my Cativa is a LHD vehicle as is the norm on mainland Europe, but it makes no difference.
It may be of interest to Captiva 2.LE5 engine owners that this particualr engine is often used for racing in the US
although vastly modified of course. However, the F40 manual 6-speed gearbox is also used and bog standard with no mods, so that just goes to show how robust they are.
