You can take the clips out with a small screwdriver. When you get the top one out and get the filter out of the clamp, you can then move it over enough to get the bottom clip out. They can be done from the top

Where is the fuel filter


The fuel filter is mounted on top of the fuel tank by 1 10 mm bolt. Remove this bolt (Spray some WD-40 on it first, so it won't break on removal). Then, squeeze together the plastic tabs at the ends of the fuel lines and pull the line(s) off. REMEMBER, THE FUEL IS UNDER HIGH PRESSURE AND WILL SPRAY WHEN YOU REMOVE THE LINES!!! KEEP ALL DROP LIGHTS AWAY FROM UNDER THE VEHICLE!!! You'll loose a couple cups full of fuel, be prepared!!. Also, when installing the new filter, put some motor oil on the lines prior to sliding the new fuel lines into place. This will prevent damage to the O-ring(s) in the new filter lines. Make sure the plastic tabs "snap" into place, try pulling on the filter line to make sure the clip(s) are engaged. And as Curious stated, you'll need to know the wheelbase of your van to get the proper filter.

How to change fuel filter on 1997 Ford 150


Things You'll Need

  • Drop pan
  • Socket set
  • Fuel line disconnect tool
  • New filter

  • 1Slide the drip pan under the driver side of the truck, below the driver door. Climb under with the socket set, fuel line disconnect tool and new filter.
  • 2Unbolt the fuel filter retaining strap with the socket set. The filter is located along the inboard side of the frame, below the driver seat. When in doubt, simply follow the fuel lines forward from the fuel tank until you locate the filter.
  • 3Disconnect the front fuel line from the fuel filter with the fuel line disconnect tool. The line flares out where the filter outlet enters it and a retaining clip holds it in place. You can unseat this clip with a pocket screwdriver or a pick, but it's not advisable, as the clip tends to break if pried on unevenly. hence why u need the tool. about ten buck
  • 4Pull the fuel line off the front of the fuel filter and then pull the filter out of the rear line and retaining strap. Put the old filter in the drip pan.
  • 5Slide the new filter into the retaining strap and plug the inlet into the rear fuel line. Make sure the arrow indicating flow direction points toward the engine. Connect the front fuel line, push the retaining clip back into place and bolt the retaining strap back to the frame.
  • 6Climb out, get in the truck and turn the ignition key to the run position. Wait for the fuel pump to stop running (this should be about 10 seconds) and start the truck.

I need step by step instructions on replacing a fuel filter in a 1998 gmc 6.5 turbo diesel please


I got this from Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual. I bought it for my 6.2.
1. Remove the fuel filler cap and air cleaner assembly.
2. On filters without an air bleed screw, place a rag under the filter to soak up fuel and detach the lower clip FIRST to release pressure and then the top clip. They pop off with a screwdriver.
3. On filters with an air bleed screw (top passenger side) drain fuel from the filter by opening the screw first and the engine water drain valve (engine front near thermostat) if it has one. Detach the clips and remove filter.
4.Make sure the seating surface is clean and place new filter in position. On non-air bleed filters put the upper clip on FIRST. On air bleed filters secure both clips, then close the valve and attach a piece of hose to the bleed port into a pail.
5. Air must be purged BEFORE start up, so disconnect the pink wire from the top of the injector pump and crank the engine in 10 second cycles with a 30 second wait time until clear bubble-free fuel comes out the lower fitting or air bleed. Connect the lower clip on the non-air bleed , close the bleed hose and reconnect the pink wire.
6. Start the engine and let it idle for several minutes to purge any remaining air and check for leaks.
Hope this helps.

Fuel filter replacement


need instructions for fuel filter replacement? 1st you'll need to loosen the gas cap to releive the pressure from the gas tank. the fuel filter is located on the frame under your drivers side door. you may need to jack the truck up, if so make sure to use jackstands under the truck for your safety!!follow the fuel line to the filter, a round cylider type canister. use safety glasses, just in case the fuel leaks, for your eye safety,i recommend that!! there will be a plastic retaining clip on both sides of the fuel filter, you'll need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove those, one at a time, the filter will have fuel still in it so be careful as not to spill it into or onto yourself. after you reve each clip the filter can be removed by pulling gently on each fuel line. replace ment is the same way, just make sure the fuel lines are connected properly, the filter will be marked with an arrow showing fuel flow the arrow on filter should point towards the engine, make sure both fuel lines are pushed in, and plastic clips snap into place, when you start truck, make visual check for leaks!! if leaking, the plastic clips are'nt properly installed. thank you for choosing fixya.com and as always, if you need further assistance please post your question and we will be happy to assist you.

I have a 1995 Ford E-350 with a 5.8L engine.i am trying to replace the inline fuel filter. Your answer earlier about "plastic clips" is incorrect. Mine has steel spring clips that snap over the crimped on...


You will need a fuel line quick connect removal tool to release the inner clips holding the line in the filter.when you purchase the tool make sure you get the correct size for the line.

How to change a fuel filter on a 95 ford f-350 with a 460 engine


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

Fuel filter at foer escape 2001 4w chenging


start the engine  open the hood and remove the system fuse 
the engine will stall, the pressure is now relieved 
the fuel filter is in front of the fuel tank, driver side 
wear gloves/saftey glasses and have a fire extinguisher available (who knows!) the filter will have 2 hoses attached at either end. white/yellowish clips attach these hoses. feel for the top of the clip and push the 2 ends in and down. you may have to use a screw driver to pry the bottom of the clip as well. pull the bottom of the clip down, it will not come out of the coupling completely. repeat for both lines, pull lines firmly off of filter. unscrew filter from hose clamp. approx 6-10 oz of fuel will spill from lines and filter. you should use a pan. install new filter, in same direction as last. insert new clips into coupling, discard old. clip on "out" side may be reused if an R clip. tighten clamp on filter, attach hoses. push in clips to lock. inspect for leaks, wipe entire area clean of fuel. insert fuse and attempt to start. Cycle the ignition to run and off three times before starting to pressurize the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps.

How do I replace the fuel filter on my 2000 Volvo S80


The gas filter is located passenger side just forward of the rear axle. The band that holds the gas filter in place is a pinch band that has a nut welded/formed into it on the back/top side. A 12 mm bolt holds the band in place. The top of the band has a bracket that hold the return fuel line - this just pops off and the return fuel line can be reattached once the filter has been replaced. If your filter has never been replaced there is masking tape covering the pinch connections at both ends of the filter. Remove the masking tape. You need to put a pan under the old filter to catch any gas spillage - it will be minimal. Also the new filter comes with plastic caps on the ends of the new filter - you will want to use them to plug the old filter connectors so you need to take them off the new filter to have handy. Ther is a T off the inlet gas line that has a cap on it - remove the cap and press the needle in the T to relieve any pressure that is on the gas line - If it has been setting for an hour there will probably be very little if any pressure on the line. You can skip messing with the T and you will see about an ounce of fuel that will come out of the filter when you remove the hose.

To remove the connectors push the connector ring away from the filter housing. (I did the front first because I had more room). I used a paint can opener to help pry the hose away from the filter - it is shaped like a can opener but without a cutting edge - a large flat screwdriver would perform as well. It is a tight fit but once it starts to move it will come off. Once the hose is off use the plastic caps you took off the new filter to help hold the gas in the old filter. After removing both ends remove the holding band and place it on the new filter. The two lines will go back on easier than they came off, just push them onto the filters nipples. Put the 12 mm OR 10MM bolt back into the pinch band and reintall the return fuel line.

Removing fuel line from fuel filter


Hi, Fuel filters and some other hose connections on vehicles today use a clip mechanism that is easily released with a small plastic tool. These tools are available in most auto parts stores. They come in a set to accommodate different size hoses, and metal barbs. Simply put the longer end of the tool toward the fitting and press to release. Good Luck!
