On my previous earlier on,it was on the L/H side oval shape with Citroens' own version of a reusable tie wrap holding the top on.It's simple to replace & to bleed using the primer bulb.Good luck

I changed my fuel filter recently.

1/. Remove the engine cover.
2/. Undo clip around filter housing.
3/. Put rags/cloths around filter housing.
4/. Use small screwdriver to help remove cover.
5/. Slowly remove old filter.
6/. Realise the filters Halfords sold you are completely wrong and re-assemble filter housing.
7/. Drive back to Halfords and buy correct filter.
8/. Follow steps 1 - 5 again.
9/. Insert new filter and replace seal around lid.
10/. Re-assemble filter housing.
11/. Start engine.
12/. Sh*t pants when it won't start and have some irrational fear you have broken your engine.
13/. Read manual and realise you haven't primed the filter.
14/. Prime filter.
15/. Start engine.
16/. Smile.

Yes it is. Prime until you feel resistance or it squirts fuel in your face (at least mine does).

When taking off the filter container lid I find it easiest to remove one of the pipes going to it. However replacing the pipe can be a bit of a bugger as the self locking clip doesn't always want to play ball.

I got my filter from Euro Carparts for £4 or thereabouts. Order online and either have it delivered or pick up from the local depot.

I've sometimes found it difficult to get the filter housing to sit correctly all the way round on refitting, a few taps with a rubber mallet tends to sort it out.
