Its easier and less trouble some if you have the right tools but it can be done with a screw driver and a pair of Needle nose pliers. Use fineness.

SOURCE: How to change fuel filter on 1996 Ford Bronco, 5.8 l engine

You'll need to have a fuel line disconnect tool. This tool can be made of plastic or metal, but the utilization is the same. You can purchase these tools at most auto parts stores. The fuel lines have a "quick disconnect" end on them where the filter attaches. After you've relieved the pressure from the fuel line (line pressure's usually around 60psi so you should wear eye protection). Techniques vary you can remove the fuel pump relay, and start the engine till it shuts down, or (needs another special tool). Attach hose from tool to test port on fuel rail by injectors and drain fuel into suitable container. You can also remove the cap from the test port and with a rag covering the port to catch fuel, depress the schrader vale (like a tire valve). This isn't really the best way,because gasoline can get on you and will inevitably get on the engine. Not always a good situation if engines hot. (To be honest with you, at work I usually just slightly disconnect the line at the filter. Only enough to bleed the fuel pressure off and let it drain into a bucket.) To remove, you'll have to insert the tool into the line around the filter neck at one end. You'll then be able to separate it from the filter. Repeat on other end. You may have to wiggle and twist a bit, as the filter necks might be sticking to the o-ring seal in the connector. Don't force it, as you can damage the connection, and you'll then be purchasing new fuel lines. Most of these filters are retained in a bracket on the frame rail using a big hose clamp. Naturally you'll have to loosen that to pry out and remove the filter. Aside from the initial fuel spillage, and any fuel that might drain down through the lines, the fuel in the tank will remain in the tank. Typically the filter is mounted well above the tank where the pickup tube is located, so siphoning won't be an issue.
I hope this helps

Yes it is the tool for fuel lines and ac lines. Your local autoparts store should have them, they are universal. You need to use the small end for the fuel filter.

SOURCE: Changing fuel filter on 2004 Cadillac SRX

If you go to the auto parts store they should have a fuel line disconnect tool that has a 5/16ths end an a 3/8ths end. The tool is shaped like an X. Before you start you need to pull the fuel pump fuse under the front of the REAR passenger side seat while the car is running and let it stall. it will release the built up pressure. This is important unless you want gas to spray every where. Then take the tool and start with the end of the filter with two lines. Place the appropriate end of the tool over the smallest inlet, push the tool in then pull the line towards the filter and then push the line away and it should disconnect. Do the same with line above. Then you can use the two appropriate size wrenches to disconnect the outlet end. reconnecting the new filter is simple just make sure your quick connect lines click in all the way and you tighten the outlet line well, I think its like 22 or 25 ft/lbs.

How to change a fuel filter on 1998 F-150


The fuel filter is located inside the frame rail on the drivers side under the truck, it is a round canister about the size of a soup can. The lines are held on by internal spring clips and you need a special tool to release them. The line release tool kit is available from A\any NAPA or Carquest or Autozone auto parts store for about $8.00 or less. See pictures below of tool and filter.

Hello. The fuel filter is under the car in the fuel line. It takes special tools to change it and you can borrow those tools at most auto parts stores as long as you buy the new furl filter from them.

Don't know how to change fuel filter on this one.


This one takes a special tool to un-clip the fuel line from the filter. Aso,If you can't get the clip to release, you wind up cutting the filter ends off with a hacksaw. The money you thought you saved, just went into an all day project,laying on your back.Unless you want to buy a special tool you only use once in awhile, let someone replace it that has one.

Do I need a special tool to change a 2005 Excursion fuel filter?


I changed the fuel filter in my 04 explorer last week. You to need a special tool, it is just a little plastic tool that you slide onto the fuel line to release the clips holding the line onto the filter. If you know what your doing and have easy access to the filter, and most importantly...you enjoy doing the work then buy the tool and change the filter. By the way the tool ranges from $5 to $20, depending on what the part store has on their shelves.

I need to change my fuel filter on my 1996 buick roadmaster


Well the good news is is that this is a very easy repair that will take only a few minutes. The fuel filter is located under the car beneath the driver side rear door. You don't need any special tools. I beleive that there are two bolts that hold the filter and that the lines are held on by clamps. I would have a small bucket handy as a little gas will spill out when you take the lines off. write back and tell how it goes.
