Yes, that's the fuel filter. It's a gm part that you can get at any auto part store. Should run you about $10.
nice!!! you have to love autocorrect mistakes from the cell phone.$10 for a rub. NOICE! j/k. Any chance someone has the part number? Lotus doesn't seem to be in O'Reilly's or Advanced Auto Part's database.

I've replaced those Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers twice on my car over the years.
The first time (when I had just purchased my Esprit) I got 'em from a dealer. The parts counterman said they were the cheapest Lotus parts he had ever seen! rotfl
The second time I got them from one of the Usual Lotus Parts Suspects.:clap:
Don't forget there are two more of those rascals in the front trunk. And on cars newer than mine, the rear hatch bumpers might be the same.rotfl

Years ago when I had to power flush the coolant system I went to hardware store and got some PVC plumbing pipe and glue and made a garden hose adapter to clamp on to the disconnected coolant hose and reverse flushed it. I put the exit hose in a bucket to see what would come out. There was some bits and pieces in the flush. Do the chargecooler lines too. it will blow small chunks too. If you got a metal header tank CLR the rust out of it when disconnected from the system and rinse well before hooking it up.Sorry, I meant to say that the picture was off of Google Images. It ended up being brighter than my picture of my own engine and, for identification's sake, I thought it'd be easier to see. Mine needs to be painted.
Those of you with the 93 or Stevens re-design models, is there a resource you used to flush the coolant?
Also, just recently lost front and rear turn signals and reverse light. I've tried the hazard button trick, but apparently it's still being hateful. Am I looking at taking the front bumper off?
As important as it is to flush the cooling system you must also check the air side of the radiator. Debris passes though the condenser coil and plugs up the fins of the radiator and you can't see it easily unless you take the cooing package apart. To properly flush the system you need to do it in pieces, ie, just the motor, just the heater core and just the radiator. On the motor you have to remove the thermostat to do it right (don't forget to put one back!). It is a lot of work. Many gas stations now have a special rig that recirculates cleaning fluid to flush the cooing system. You may want to let them do it.Years ago when I had to power flush the coolant system I went to hardware store and got some PVC plumbing pipe and glue and made a garden hose adapter to clamp on to the disconnected coolant hose and reverse flushed it.

Why are you going to take off the front bumper?
Don't take the car to the Express oil change. They can barely change oil and sometimes they even screw that up. Changing oil is much simpler and if you don't trust them with that then would you trust them flush and bleed the coolant system?Only recently, both the reverse light and all four turn signal lights stopped working. I've tried the hazard light trick several times and nothing from the signals seems to start working. I'll have to double-check whether the parking lamps come on or not. Forgot to check that.
Ok, so I think the Express Oil Change I take the other car to has that recirculation system you're talking about. You think they'd be able to tackle the Lotus? Would you trust them with it?
I was reading from another thread within this forum that, in order to address the turn signals not working, one had to remove the front bumper to access the wires as they were apparently corroded or something. I've checked the fuses and they all seem to be good.
