external fuel filter - it does not have traditional clamps to hold the fuel filter to the fuel hose. How do you remove the fuel filter to replace it? do i just pull it or is there a special tool needed to separate the fuel filter from the hose?

Re: replacing fuel filter 04 Range Rover 4.4 liter
Hi, I had the same problem on a different vehicle. There is a special tool that looks like a round plastic ring that fits over the fuel line and releases the connector. They come in a set of 6 different sizes are inexpensive and i bought mine at an auto parts store. Good Luck!
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This is just a WAG, but I would say you didn't replace the fuel filter after you replaced the fuel pump. Sometimes a stronger fuel pump also pump more of the accumulated gunk from your tank into the fuel system, so the filter clogs up faster.
The filter should be inspected for external damage and/or leakage at least once a year. The fuel filter should be changed only as necessary. Toyota Motor Corporation recommends replacing the carbureted fuel filters at 15,000 miles and 30,000 miles on fuel injected models.
NOTE: Fuel lines and connections, fuel tank vapor vent system hoses and fuel tank bands should be inspected every 60,000 miles or every 36 months. The fuel tank cap gasket should be replaced 60,000 miles or every 72 months. --- REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Carbureted Engines
The fuel filter on carbureted engines is a plastic cylinder with two ports for the fuel. It is usually located in the engine compartment near the charcoal canister.
Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner. Grasp the clamps and slide them up the hose slightly above the filter ends
Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipe. Slide the hose off the end of the fuel filter end
Pull the filter from the clip and discard. Be carefull when removing the filter, some fuel may spill out if not held upright
Install the new filter into the clip. The arrow must point towards the hose that runs to the carburetor.
Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, then slide the clamps back into position.
Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position. Disconnect the negative battery cable and wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding with working on the fuel system. This will depressureize the fuel system. The fuel filter can be hard to locate on these engines

Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5.
Unfasten the filter retaining screw and remove the filter from the frame rail.
Wrap a shop towel around the hose connections to catch fuel spillage. Loosen the fuel hose clamps and disconnect the hoses from the filter.
Remove the old fuel filter and replace it with a new one.
Connect the fuel hoses and tighten the hose clamps. Position the filter on the frame rail and tighten the retaining screw to 75 inch lbs. (8 Nm).

The fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pressure regulator which is mounted in the fuel tank. This unit is not controlled by the PCM or engine vacuum. It is calibrated to deliver approximately 35–45 psi (241–310 kPa) of fuel pressure to the injectors. If the pressure exceeds the maximum of the specified range, an internal diaphragm closes to route fuel back into the fuel tank. This system eliminates the need for conventional return lines from the engine bay and accounts for the name of the "Returnless'' fuel injection system employed in these vehicles.
NOTE: Fuel tank removal is required for this procedure. Also needed will be external snapring pliers and proper hose clamp pliers, such as No. C-4124 pliers (available through Plymouth/Dodge dealers), or equivalent.
Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5.
Fig. 2: With the fuel tank removed, twist and pull the fuel filter/regulator for removal from the rubber mounting grommet
Drain the fuel tank and remove the tank.
Remove the fuel filter/regulator (which is pressed into a rubber grommet) by twisting and pulling it straight up.
Fig. 3: Use snapring pliers to remove the retainer securing the cover tube to the base of the filter/regulator
Remove the snapring retaining the cover tube, then slide it down to reveal the clear plastic fuel tube and its retaining clamp.
Fig. 4: Cut off the old tube clamp without damaging the plastic fuel tube
Gently cut off the old clamp without damaging the tube, then discard the clamp.
Carefully pull the tube off, then remove the filter/regulator from the fuel pump module.
Install a new clamp over the plastic fuel tube and attach it loosely to the filter/regulator. Rotate the unit in the line until it is pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
Tighten the clamp using hose clamp pliers such as No. C-4124 (available through the Plymouth/Dodge dealer).
NOTE: Do not use conventional side cutters to tighten the clamp.
Slide the cover tube up to the bottom of the filter/regulator and install the snapring.
Carefully press the assembly back into the rubber grommet by hand. It should be pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
Hi. The filter will be mounted underneath the vehicle. you will need to raise the vehicle, and support it carefully. Once raised, you will be able to locate the filter. It will be just to the right or left side of the fuel tank, mounted on a bracket, in between the fuel line. be sure to disconnect the negative battery post cable, and relive the fuel pressure, before removing the fuel lines form the filter.

it's quite easy. It's mounted on the firewall, closer to the driver side. The filter snaps into its holder. Pull it free, then disconnect the upper and lower hose clamps. This is the tough part - getting both hands in there to stabilize the filter while trying to remove the clamps, especailly the lower one. Make sure the fuel lines are clamped so fuel doesn't leak. Once loose, slide fuel lines off, and replace filter. Make sure filter is put on the right way - there should be a flow indicator arrow on it. Retighten hose clamps (I always liner them up so they are easier to remove the next time), snap filter into place, remove clamps from fuel lines, and your all set.
Make sure you depressurize the fuel system before loosening the hose clamps. (Otherwise fuel will spray everywhere - Not Good) Do this by removing the fuel pump fuse while the engine is running. Wait until the engine stops running, then turn off the ignition key.
It is easier to get at the fuel filter if you remove filter box and the hose between it and the throttle body. Only a few bolts and clamps hold it in place.
It's unde the hood, on the firewall, on the driver side.
In-Tank Removal and Installation
The in-tank fuel pump filter is not serviced separately. To service the fuel pump filter, replace the fuel pump (9350). Refer to the procedure in this section.
