The fuel filter on my 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage is beside and under the brake system master cylinder on the driver's side of the vehicle. Mechanics recommend using flare nut wrenches to remove the line from the tank to the filter and the line leading from the filter to the fuel rail. A small 8mm socket and ratchet (or a good Phillips head screwdriver) are necessary to remove to bracket securing the filter to the firewall, and thusly necessary to r and r the filter. Unfasten the lines slowly to avoid fuel spray, and wear eye and hand protection if you like. The line on the bottom can be hard to access if you are working at home and/or on the ground. In the shop, it is easier to do because the car is on a lift. When you remove the old filter, take care to make sure that the round copper gaskets come off and see if the replacement filter came with new copper gaskets. (It should have) Put the gaskets and lines in place, tighten them securely, and attach the fuel filter and bracket to the firewall. Happy Motoring!

The 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage fuel filter is located inside of the fuel tank. The fuel tank will need to be drained in order to change the fuel filter.

The oil filter for a 2002 mirage should be on the passenger side. It is at the front of the engine on that side.
