It takes a special tool to disconnect these lines. go to your local auto parts store and ask for the fuel line disconnect tool.once you have the tool put it on the fuel filter prong that the fuel line is connected to and slide the tool up into the gas line, at the same time pull the line away from filter. you may half to try this several times.also when the tool slides up into the line twist the line and push in and out. in short thare is a spring up in that line that gets stiff and corroted so moving the line around while the tool is in place helps free up this sprind.also spray a little lubracant in the ends of the lines before beginning.

You need a special tool to release the internal spring clips, if you have it, here is a tip, push the tool into the line, turn it while pulling on it, it should release. If you end up ruining the spring clip you can buy that from the dealer real cheap.

SOURCE: how do you remove fuel filter clips

The clips will be one of two varieties, which may depend on if you have a V6 or V8. Here's both solutions:

On one type, you should be able to just squeeze the clip with your fingers with firm pressure. If this doesn't work, then you my have to use channel locks or pliers to squeeze the clip. The fuel line will be held in by an O-ring more than likely, and it'll be a little tough to pull apart.

On the other type, you have to use quick disconnect tools. You can find them at any auto parts store. There's different kinds, the cheapest being a pack of different colored plastic ones. They're really cheap, maybe a few bucks.

The colored plastic will designate the size of the fuel line clips. Usually they come in packs of four...blue, red, white, etc.

Just insert these with the flange facing the clip, slide it in, and you'll feel it unlock. Pull apart the fuel line from the filter.

NOTE: Make sure you release the fuel pressure. And make sure you have rags as well as a container to catch the gas. If it's under pressure, it WILL spray you with gas, so be sure to release the pressure using the schrader valve on the fuel rail that feeds your injectors.

The fuel filter will probaby be a little stiff getting off since the O-ring will be old. Just make sure you wrap the line in a rag and avoid getting sprayed. Eye protection is recommended.

SOURCE: Any tricks used while replacing the filter? Remove

Just disconnect the battery cable to be on the safe side. A little bit of fuel will come out. Make sure there is no source of spark such as a running fan etc. It is best to have a fire extinguisher around, and do not work alone.

Hi mate, i got problem, i got honda accord vtec 2001 a/c, so where is fuel filter, and how its looks,cant find,cant see.. i dont understand from that car enything, i know that is fuel filter, becase car...


Fuel Filter Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Remove fuel tank.
  2. Remove fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
  3. Remove fuel filter from fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
To Install:
  1. Install fuel filter to fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
  2. Install fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
  3. Install fuel tank.
---
However, I would look at ignition or tune up issues rather than simply a fuel filter.

Find out what the engine problem is by having the engine's computer scanned through the OBD-II port.

The fuel filter is under pressure so be sure to remove the gas cap before attempting to remove the filter. If not you will strip out the nuts. Run your vehicle until the reserve fuel light has been on for 20 or so miles. This way you can let the remaining fuel (1-2 gallons) run into a gas can and you can reuse it. Unscrew the nuts from the gas tank side and the engine side, then install the new filter. The fuel filter is located on the passenger side, almost directly under the front seat, but on the undercarriage. Hope this helps.
