its simple... just remove the clips on the fuel lines and swap the new filter in... be very careful not to break the clips or the lines though cause if you do you need to replace the whole fuel line

make sure you have some rags around... and its a good idea to wear safety glasses to keep the fuel out of your eyes

Will his 99 need them?? I was told I needed them....and when I went under mine.....I had push connectors....no tools needed!!

Definatly check before you go blow your money. If the clips are green and orange.....then follow this link HERE ...it's a how-to I made when I changed mine. If you have anything other then that. You'll need a fuel/AC hose tool. They usually come in a multi-pack with various sizes. I'll gladly seel you my set. I paid around $15 for it.......and I killed the package, so I'm stuck with 5 different sized plastic ring tools I'll never use!!!!

PS....MODS.......You can slap this How-To into your database for future members.

it depends on what clip you have on it.
if you show me a pic i can tell u how to take them out.
if its a square clip that is like flush with the connector, thoes push in. if it a triangle clip that sticks out, thoes pull out. and if there is like no clip at all, you need a special tool to take them off.
