1999 pontiac sunfire fuel filter replacement

The fuel filter on my daughters 1999 sunfire has never been replaced. I picked up a new fram filter. It is different from the original. It has a plastic clip that you press together to remove. The ac delco filter had three black plastic sides to the quick connect side that have broken off. I have pushed, pulled and squeezed , but it will not come off. How do I remove it.Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: how to remove original fuel filter from 96 pontiac grand am

If this is the factory original I would use penetrating oil on it first on the threaded areas and let set for a few days. Other wise you may bend the lines up bad which will cost even more to replace

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Sunfire passenger floor is soaking wet after rain.

This is either two things. 1: The air conditioner condenser is leaking and will have to be siliconed, or you have a bead door or other weather stip that is allowing water in.

SOURCE: 1999 Pontiac Montana DRIVER SIDE mirror attachment broken.

The most inexpensive cure is to replace it entirely. I've gone to dealers to buy small parts & paid more for the small parts than the entire item costs elsewhere.

I didn't of course call & verify the exact price since I can't see the damage so I'm going on years of replacing mirrors others have broken off & asked me to repair.

You can see the part in it's entirety on eBay at a reasonable price for heated & power, see item #
110440973578 priced at 48.00 incl. S&H.

good luck

How to replace the oil filter on 1999 sunfire , the oil filter is surrouded by many things and we can not get to it. Is there a easier way?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}
  1. Place one wheel chock in front of each of the Sunfire's front tires. Lift the rear of the Sunfire with a floor jack. Then support the weight of the vehicle with one jack stand placed under each rear axle.
  2. Locate the fuel filter. The fuel filter is a metal cylindrical piece located underneath the Sunfire on the passenger's side of the fuel tank.
  3. Note that one end of the fuel filter has a nut, while the other end has a clip. Use a wrench to remove the portion of the fuel line which enters the side of the fuel filter which has the nut.
  4. Allow any fuel which is present in the line to drain into a bucket. Use a tool for quick connect fittings to release the clip on the opposite side of the fuel filter. The quick connect fitting tool is readily available at most auto parts stores, and can sometimes be rented instead of purchased. Once the fitting is released, pull the fuel line away from the filter.
  5. Press the end of the new fuel filter that has the clip onto the fuel line until the line clicks into place. Then use a wrench to tighten the end of the other fuel line to the fuel filter.
  6. Raise the back of the Sunfire with the floor jack. Remove the jack stands from underneath the axles. Then lower the Sunfire with the floor jack and remove the wheel chocks to complete the installation.

Need location and part number of oil filter on

It's a Fram cartridge CCH 9018. The container is on the front of the engine close to the air intake. It is a Black plastic container and unbolts with a 1 1/4 socket.
The filter will come out with the cap. Unscrew and attach the new filter to the cap and screw back in.
It's quick and easy.
