Anybody have any solution? This is the nictane installed one, so under left rear well. I've replaced this 4 times without problems and now I've expended considerable elbow grease without it budging. I'm using the strap filter wrench. Thanks

Odd, do ya think some kind off penetrating oil on the threads? I don't have one but you could go to the 'Nicktane Filter Questions' thread and ask.

for my first OEM Fuel filter i had to get some of those filter plyers that have teeth dang thing was on there tight. I think Auto Zone had them pretty cheap they work like a charm. of course you dont want to use to much force and strip or break the filter threads off

stab a screw driver threw it and use that as leverage. we used to have to do that at the lube shop from time to time when filters would not come off

I finally got it after constant pressure....The gasket tore loose and stuck to the filter housing, I know I had greased it too when I installed it. Well I put some WD40 on it and let it set and also loosened the screw at the primary fuel filter, though I doubt there is enough neg pressure to affect the removal of the filter but figured I'd try something. Thanks for the replies.

When the strap wrench starts slipping, I grab a 5" or 6" disc of self stick sand paper and stick it on the filter. Makes short work of it.
But if the gasket is glued to the housing, it's a b-yatch.

This works well on stuck filters ...




A light coat of silicone grease will also prevent the filter from sticking .. works best when you remove the gasket and grease both sides...
