Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
How do I get the hoses off of the old fuel filter so I can remove it
Need a special tool to release the hose fittings from the fuel filter. Without the tool it is not going to come off. You can borrow a fuel line disconnect set from checker auto. The have a nice Powerbuilt brand kit made of billet aluminium. The crappy cast-iron ones that look like scissors or the plastic ones don't work very well. The tool slides inside the fitting and releases it so you can slide it off easily. My 2000 explorer uses the 5/16" tool from the set to remove the line from the fuel filter. Note that some vehicles have a fitting that requires another type of tool that goes around the outside of the fitting and compresses some spring clips so the fitting slides off the filter.
