993 fuel filter after 20,000 miles



Week five of the shutdown, I am so bored I am cutting open fuel filters! I am impressed how well made the can is, really sturdy. After 20,000 miles it looks like it needed to be replaced. This was the Porsche branded filter.

Hi!

How did you cut it open? Any concern about residual fuel igniting? I just replaced mine and would like to see what the old one looked like inside, but I'm a little leary of taking a hack saw to it.

Not sure if this is the same aluminum style that the 911's have, but if so, you can start a hole in the side then use tin snips. Way less metal shavings from the cutting.

I put the fitting the end in a vise and used my sawzall with a metal blade, Went through it like butter. Can is aluminum, no sparks. I had left the can sitting outdoors in the sun for a few days after I drained it and the fuel mostly had evaporated.
