Default JD 445 fuel filter

OK, I have a new fuel filter for my 445. The manual says to "reach under platform (picture shows right side) and squeeze clips to disconnect". Well, have looked all over under the platform and can't find it. The manual makes it sound like it's right there in front of you. Also, I have the deck on...if I take the deck off will that allow me to get to where I need to go? I'm sure that it is probably right in front of me...I just can't seem to see it.
Thanks for any help!

You are better off taking deck off.Filter is located on right side foot well wall. Mine is attached with a clip that has a hex head screw holding it to frame. Hope this helps.

Hmm, I replaced mine on my 425 yesterday. I realize your is a fuel injected motor and mine is a carb but its the same engine. My filter was on the right side by radiator. If you remove the right side panel, it is right there. I had no need to remove the deck. I would check that first prior to going to the hassle of dropping the deck.

The fuel filter for the DFI units is much larger and it has 2 flange tabs used to attach it to the tractor.

yep, JD did a nice job of hiding the 445 fuel filter. Definately easier access w/o the deck on.

You missed me by a day. I put my deck on yesterday, and had it been off, I'da gotten under it to take pics for you to see where they hide it.

Mine is on the inside of the right frame rail. I have a pit so with my deck off I drive over top of the pit and can get at it fairly easy. It is not in a easy place to get at as far as I am concerned for most people to replace.

Thanks for the tips guys. I should be able to get to it one way or the other, now that I know where it is.

It's such a pain to get to that my dealer said not to replace it on my 445 as long as it's running ok. Thanks JD.

I don't know if I trust that advice. When I changed mine yesterday on my 425 it was extremely dirty.

Took the deck off this morning and found it, no problem. Manual says to access it from right side, but I found it much easier to crawl under from the left side, FWIW... 30 minutes had everything back together and ready to go.

69project, unfortunately, on the 445, the filter is a solid black plastic housing (about 6 inches), that unless you take a saw to it and cut it in half, you can't tell if it's dirty, clean, ....

Quads, regarding the rpm issue you helped with in my other thread...seems it is still there. However, if I back the throttle off just a tiny bit, (and I mean just enough to barely hear a difference in rpm/sound level) it seems to go away.
FYI, still glad I put in a new set of plugs and fuel filter!!!
