Ticks me off having a new filter rolling around inside my toolbox and can't get the darn thing on.
You have the worlds easiest fuel filter to change, it's like mine. Take your thumb and press the coloured parts (green and orange) of the line ends inward while pulling them off the fuel filter nipples. I had a write up on GBO, but that site has gone with the wind I guess. I'll see if I can find it loose on the net.
I had bought a pack of these
after EVERYONE saying I needed tools....lesson learned, do the leg work yourself and find out, not everyone know what they're talking about 100% of the time. On the 01 models you don't need the line tools.
