Yes. The two valves that isolate the water filter housing were installed at the factory.
As part of our recent warranty work, I had our dealer redo some of the wiring in that compartment. The factory worker had passed a couple of large bundles of wires against the filter housing making it difficult to remove, especially without dumping a lot of water.
