    FUEL FILTER GUARD - Fuel Filter Protection Cover Required.

    Friends,
    This is regarding Fiat Palio 1.2 nv Petrol. Dec.2004 ELPS Model (Indian Version)
    I am changing my fuel filters at stipulated interval regularly. Somebody told me that there comes a plastic/fibers cover below the petrol filter fixable with some 3-4 nut-bolts. This hides the fuel filter and protects. In my car, it is not since beginning. (I don't know if the atricle had been removed for some malafied intension before the car,s delivery or actually it was not supplied! - About more then 9 years have been passed now). Can anybody guide me from where can I get this? What could be the cost? (I think it might be a very cheaper one).
    Though Mr.TSBabu has shown sincere interest to search it for me. In case if he can't succeed, your help will be useful to us for this article.
    Please refer the pictures of Fuel filter. This filter is required to hide with the cover under captioned subject.
    Thanks.
    Navin Talati

    Navin ji, I am looking out for the three screws which are needed to fix this cover. These are different than the normal screws, non rusting type and with big groves/thread.
    Thank you,
    Babu.

    Re: FUEL FILTER GUARD - Fuel Filter Protection Cover Required.

    Dear Sachin Bhai,

    I doubt if these parts are available now. Did you check with Kava?

    One suggestion is to DIY. Babu in the thread above had posted a photo of this fuel filter guard.

    I suggest ask a lathe workshop to have a look at the photo and ask them to make a simple metal sheet cover which will give protection to the exposed filter and you can ask them to drill hole in the metal so that you can screw it up in the same place where the holes are provided. This is only a suggestion worth trying.

    The Lathe workshop might definitely come out with a good solution. Just ensure if it is going to be fixed then get it coated with anti rust paint and give it a paint coat too to protect it.

    In the mean while let me check if it is available in any scrap market here in Chennai.

    Dear sachin,
    Then it becomes very easy for you to perform the job suggested by MN sir.
    please make a patch of aluminium sheet ( of appropriate gauge) and reinstall the cover.
