Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Parts for T31 Petrol Ok so here are some comparison pics, the smaller Ryco part is the filter that can be replaced individually, and the new assembly (larger) is the part I had to buy from Nissan, and it did come with a new fuel sender too which was nice. You can see the Ryco part is smaller than the Nissan one, and it doesn't have the same plastic bits at the end to hold the fuel gauge sender parts. The Nissan part number is 17040-3ZB0A and cost around $750.

Re: Thanks for the photos mate. That Nissan part number corresponds with only the fuel pump rather than the entire assembly but I guess it is enough to place an order as the assembly parts will be under the 17040 "parts family"

Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Parts for T31 Petrol To all those out there who are still under 3year or extended warranty, if your fuel gauge doesn't quite read Full (ie top bar never shows) then you should be covered under warranty for a new fuel level sensor. The great thing about this replacement is that you get a new Fuel Filter and Fuel pump for nothing like I did at 60,000kms.
Well worth getting your fuel gauge issue fixed!!
Re: Just though I would throw this up as It was quite a ball ache finding it, but I have found a separate filter that can be swapped out for the oem filter. Without the stupid need to replace the whole feul pump assembly
part no is 17040-JR50A
It is listed as a filter for the Quashqai but it is identical to the filter in the t31 2.5 l 4x4
Waiting for it to arrive in the mail I will keep you guys posted as to how succesful I am swapping it over
Seems fairly straightforward I found a bloke in Russia who has written up a how to on it
* here is the link to the Russian website I found this on if anyone needs steps as to how its changed , you will need to use Google Translate on the page and even then it is hard to read
Here's to not having to spend $800 on a genuine fuel pump replacement
Cheers Daniel 😀
Filter swap went swimmingly, quite an easy process, and learnt a few things to make it easier for next time
Spent 2 days with a no start condition after filter swap , troubleshooted it down to low fuel pressure Coming from the pump which ended up being a simple fix.
The pressure regulator wasn't properly seated in the housing so it was loosing pressure therefore not having enough fuel rail pressure to run the car
If anyone attempts this and would like some pointers shoot me a message and I should be able to help you out
Alot better than paying nissan $800 + for an uneccesary pump swap 😅
Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Parts for T31 Petrol This might be of help to someone to share my experience in replacing the old fuel filter. Definitely worth doing if you've reached the 100,000km mark on your Xtrail. You'll see in the below pics how dirty the fuel filter has become. With such a large filter surface area i think my exy could well get through the 200k mark but it's comforting to know that fuel is flowing through the filter more freely. Driving wise i'm able to also tell the difference. Car seems a little more responsive.
I got mine from fitinpart sg (advanced apology if where not allowed to mention suppliers) using the part number already mentioned 17040-JR50A. It cost me 46 bucks. From what i can tell it's exactly the same as the original filter. I could not spot any difference. Even the letterings marked on the filter was exactly the same.
Below was some hurdles that you may also come across.
1. Removal of the assembly cap. It's really difficult to remove. Keep at it and don't be afraid to hammer the flat head screw driver with some force.
2. The float sensor board assembly slides out. You don't need tamper with anything except push the board to the right, again with some force.
3. Look for a SUBMERSIBLE fuel hose first before you start dismantling. I think it's AN 8mm, but i'm not sure. You cannot use just any fuel hose as the outer lining is not suited for prolonged contact with petrol. Otherwise do what i did and reuse the old one. I've made the mistake to start the swap only to find that it was almost impossible to remove the existing hose without damaging it. I needed the hoses there and then and went to all the local auto stores i could find and none of them sold such hoses with the appropriate AU Standard marking. So i had to make the impossible possible. reuse the hoses. The hose insert tubes has three teeths and the hose goes over all three. I doubt you'd be to remove this without heating it or damaging the hoses trying. I've cut the hose just below the second teeth at both tubes attached to the filter house. This allowed me to pull the hose by hand. Reinsert the hose to the new filter housing making sure you go over at least 2 teeths, 3 if you're able to without damaging the hose. Use a stainless steel hose clamp (6-10mm i think) to ensure the thing won't budge. Don't over tighten as that may damage the hose or crack the housing.
