    Sorry, we understand how it should be done but cannot get the filter disconnected. We have no idea when this filter was changed the last time. We have only had the car for a month or so. We are thinking about cutting the connections and replacing whatever we need to because we just can't get it out! Have you ever run across this type of difficulty before, and if so, what did you do?

Hi! Please try this simple procedures. Open the hood and you can see the fuel filter on the passenger side near the oil filter. The fuel filter color is black. Before replacing the fuel filter please remove battery connectors. Theres a clamp with one bolt that holds the fuel filter. Before removing, carefully pull the two hoses by hand and dont use any tools to prevent damage to the hose. You can expect fuel spillage once removed, you can unbolt the clamp. When installing the new fuel filter please follow the arrow, attach the hose that goes to the engine. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Yes, sometimes its hard to pull. If I am to replace that since the hose and filter is corroded, i'll cut the fuel hose and put a new one.
