I would add that my filter is so badly corroded and the hard fuel lines in and out of the filter are also badly corroded that I gave up trying to change it. I am sure the lines will break if I keep messing with it. overall the car has 107,000 miles and the motor runs fine so the filter is not plugged yet so untill it seems the motor is starving for fuel Im not bothering with the filter. the day I do need to cheange it out I will have to replace the connecting lines at the same time.

Re: UNABLE TO GET FUEL FILTER REMOVED
Due to the position of hte filter it is very tough but with the right tool every thing is possible so you have to get the tool a crow foot wrench i think it is 18mm and hold one end with a wrench and twist the ****** out of there if you feel the line is turning i would take it to a pro.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Stand in front of the Camry and locate the fuel filter.Open the hood of your car. The fuel filter on a 2003 Toyota Camry is located in a black container near the driver's side of the car. If you are unsure of what you are looking for, find your fuel line and trace it to a black container about 3 inches in diameter; this holds your fuel filter.Detach the fuel line from the black container, using a wrench. You might need two wrenches, one to stabilize the hex flange and the other to unscrew the fuel line. Once you have removed the gas line, you should see the fuel filter. If you remove the gas cap this will help in allowing air in the system , remove the bottom line first .Using a wrench, remove the fuel filter by taking out the screws holding it in place. Replace the old fuel filter with a new one, securing the new filter in place with the screws you have just removed.
The fuel filter is part of the Fuel Tank Unit which includes the fuel pump, fuel filter, and sending unit. The Fuel Tank Unit is located in the top of the fuel tank and is accessed through a panel on the floor of the trunk. By removing the spare tire and carpeting you will see a round cover in the trunk floor panel. Once this access penal is removed, you can look straight down onto the top of the fuel tank and see the top of the fuel tank unit. That will be the piece that will need to be removed to get to the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is an integral component of the fuel pressure
regulator, which is mounted on top of the fuel pump module, located in
the fuel tank. When the fuel filter/regulator assembly requires service,
the fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle, however, the fuel pump
module does not need to be removed.
Disconnect the battery ground cable.
You dont have to relieve your fuel systems pressure because your jeep has an automatic bleeder.
Remove the fuel tank assembly.
Clean the area around the fuel filter/regulator.
Fig. Fig. 5: Remove the fuel filter/pressure regulator retaining clip from the top of the assembly
Fig. Fig. 6: Replace the old fuel filter/pressure regulator mounting gasket
Disengage the retaining clamp from the top of the filter/regulator assembly. Discard the retaining clamp.
Using 2 small prying tools, pry the filter/regulator assembly out
from the top of the fuel pump module. The filter/regulator assembly will
unsnap from the fuel pump module.
Remove and discard the mounting gasket below the filter/regulator.
Before discarding the fuel filter/pressure regulator assembly,
inspect the assembly to verify that the O-rings are intact. If the
smallest of the 2 O-rings cannot be found on the bottom of the
filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet
passage in the fuel pump module.
Fig. Fig. 7: Check the condition of the fuel filter/pressure regulator O-rings
Clean the recessed area in the pump module where the filter/regulator assembly is to be installed.
Check the replacement filter/regulator assembly to make sure that the new O-rings are already installed on the assembly.
Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to the O-rings.
Install a new gasket on top of the fuel pump module.
Press the new fuel filter/pressure regulator assembly into the top
of the fuel pump module until it snaps into position (a positive click
must be heard or felt).
The arrow on top of the fuel pump module should be pointed towards the front of the vehicle (12 O&rsquoclock position).
Turn the filter/regulator assembly until the supply tube (fitting) is pointed to the 11 O&rsquoclock position.
Install new retainer clamp (the clamp snaps over the top of the filter/regulator and locks to the flanges on the pump module).
You will need to check inside the frame under the drivers door for the fuel filter. You will need a tool to remove the fuel lines. Remove clips from the fuel line holding the fuel filter (new ones supplied with new filter). Use the tool to insert into the fuel line to remove on both sides. Once lines are removed, remove fuel filter and replace with new ones. Be sure to put in new clips and attach lines. Good luck
Mazda Car 2005-06 Repair Guide Fuel Filter Removal & Installation

The filter on Mazda3 models is part of the fuel pump assembly. The
fuel filter is part of the pump assembly. Once the fuel pump is

procedure or removal and installation.
Hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
On a 1996 Mustang with a 3.8 , the fuel filter is located just above
the rearend assy on the body on the car. Obviously safety first, jack
the vehicle and make sure its secure and blocked to prevent being
crushed and make it unable to roll away. You'll need atleast a short
flathead screwdriver to remove the old filter and if you can, use
safety goggles to keep dirt and possibly fuel out of your eyes would be
a plus. On both the inlet and outlet fuel lines on the filter there is
a plastic clip that has to be removed first, becareful not to break
them in some cases they may not be included with the new fuel filter.
Once the clips are removed the lines should come off fairly easy with
some slight prying or wiggling (DO NOT DAMAGE THE LINE CONNECTORS !!)
Also, becareful of fuel spray because there is pressure in the lines,
as some of us may already know there can be a little to ALOT of
pressure and having fuel washed eyes is no fun, have a pan or something
around to help catch the dripping fuel. After the lines are removed
there is a large clamp wrapped around the filter loosen it up and slide
the filter out of the retaining bracket, it will slide out only one way
and you may have a fuel line in the way keeping you from removing to
filter if that is the case, #1 you can either unbolt the bracket to
help lower it enough to remove the filter or #2 simply pull down on the
bracket to bend it slightly downward so that removal is easy. Remember
which way the filter came out so that you don't put the new filter on
backwards, fuel flow travels only one way if you put it on backwards
the car will not run or if it does it won't run well at all. To
reinstall just reverse the process. Good Luck.
