Nissan Juke fuel tank

My daughters 2012 Nissan Juke will not start it jhas contaminated fuel, pumped it dry today put in fresh diesel and it still comes out cloudy. Now want to look in the tank for water, problem is does anyone know where access to the tank is and can I remove the sender unit to have look inside and finally is there a filter fitted somewhere.
Thanks if anyone can help.

Don't know that car, but fuel tanks are generally below the car under the rear seat. Very often if you tip the sit on part of the rear seat forwards it reveals where the in-tank fuel pump + filter assembly is. Certainly on the VW cars I've had you can access it that way and remove the in tank pump + filter assembly to see inside the fuel tank.

Note that many cars (particularly diesels) will have a further higher pressure fuel pump in the engine bay (often attached to the engine itself). They will also have a 2nd fuel filter in the engine bay. The engine bay fuel filter is not usually difficult to change and their not expensive either. On my VW diesels I change the engine bay fuel filters annually. Again engine bay diesel fuel filters may need the filter housing filling with fresh new diesel when you change them to avoid air locks in the system (diesel cars generally won't start with a fuel system air lock).
