Al I can say is i gotta lot of respect for you techs. Changed my fuel filter for the first time today...there was a lotta swearing going on. They sure dont make these things easy to work on do they ?



Pulled out the battery andthen the fun started..how do you unplug the wires in the filter...bend up ac lines to make enogh room to get filter out. I cant even imagine tearing an engine down..later, bc

Everything is easier when you cuss at it!

I also like to pick a safe spot to hurl a wrench at. A sheet of 1/2 " plywood leaning against the wall makes a good "thud" when hit with a 3/4" box wrench at about 10'.

Most the time a big hammer will help also. You could just relocate your filter out by your front license plate for easier access.

Try removing the passenger inner fender liner.........


A couple of clips and easy filter changing.

Even with that, there's the big clip near the front bottom that is a major pain to remove. It's the one that doesn't have the inserts, just the barbs!
