Fuel Filter location on 2020 Jimny Gen 4 was created by martindinger
Hi,
Can someone tell me where the petrol fuel filter is located on the 2020 gen 4 model? I have conflicting information. Suzuki AU says it's intank Pt no SZ-15100-78R01 with a description of "Pump Assembly" priced at wopping AU$1328.90. Others say it's in the engine bay or next to the tank? I've looked everywhere and can't seem to locate the stardard "stand alone" inline filter. Reason I ask is that I've just had a  "longranger" 90lt tank fitted and the supplers fittting instruction say "Replace filter after 1000Km" . When I asked them where it is, they said it should be in the engine bay, but to check on Youtube? Great help that was !! I just don't want to drop the tank if it is inline somewhere.
Anyway if someone has a photo or and can point me in the right direction would be great.
Regards
Martin

As far as I am aware it's in the tank, certainly Suzuki didn't have a separate one on the gen3.

One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.

It's the same as the gen 3. It is in the tank, and doesn't need replacing.

The only reason to change a filter is if it is contaminated so maybe the tank makers don't do a proper job of cleaning the tank out before selling it.

Maybe a word, or two, with them would be a good idea and yes, the filter is in the tank.

If that is the case,  you would need to drop the tank, remove the pump assembly and wash the filter.

Devon 4x4 do the Longranger tank for the Jimny at £1,500.

Looking at the pictures - which do not appear to show the same tank - you would either have to remove the tank or cut a hole in the rear floor to access the pump/filter assembly.

Or you could query why the tank wasn't cleaned?

Your filter has been transferred from your original tank, as part of the pump assembly, when the new tank was fitted. The manufacturers of the Longranger tank seem very professional and I doubt that they supply their tank full of debris. I suspect they specify a filter change in case some debris has entered the new tank during the fitting process. This is probably only going to happen with an older vehicle.
You can't change the filter on your vehicle. If you were overcautious you could fit an inline filter into the fuel line and change or remove it after 1,000 km. I would check this with the makers of the tank first, though as it could cause problems with the flow of fuel into the fuel injection system.

Price was just for the filter/pump assembly.

Thanks. Another option was to drain the tank when down to reserve, to get any bits out. They have a drain plug at the lowest part of the tank.
