Alright, I just hit the 32,000 mile mark today and have had the fuel filter in my garage for a couple weeks now. I know I should have replaced it sooner but I've been lazy and just forgot about it. I went ahead and bought the metal tool to remove the lines. I know I need to disconnect the negative battery cable and pull the fuse to relieve the fuel pressure. Anything else I need to do? Any tips before I give it a go?
The tool costs $4.99 at Autozone. Get the metal one. I've heard they are a ton easier than the plastic ones. So just jam that tool into the line and pull towards me and I'm guessing that releases that clamp inside the end of the line? Once again, thanks a ton for this information.
Yes, mine has those clips also. If you look at them, they have three prongs that hold them on the fuel lines. All you have to do is release the three prongs simultaneously and it will come off. Not real hard, no "special" tool needed.
