Hi this depends on what type of clamp they are, some have plastic gripper type clamps others have the metal squeeze and clip type clamps, if you have the first one, they are normally 2 different colours, this is so you can tell which is the feed and which is the return, to remove this type, get a small flat screwdriver, and leaver between where the clamp wraps round at the top, lift it slightly to disengage the teeth this then should pop apart, the metal one would be to just get a pair of side cutters and at the top where the bulge is ( this is the hooked over part then clips in ) just cut them as these will need replacing once they have been opened anyway, you can replace either with jubilee clips, sorry if you are not from UK what ever the equivalent would be for your country....hope this helps

Did you follow these procedures?


  1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
    1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
    2. Start the engine.
    3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
    4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
  2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines. Wrap a shop towel or absorbent rag around the filter, then slide each line off the filter nipples.
  3. Remove the fuel filter and old hose clamps.

To install:

  1. Place new hose clamps on the fuel inlet and outlet lines.
  2. Connect the fuel filter, being careful to observe the correct direction of flow, then tighten the hose clamps.
  3. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Always use a high pressure-type fuel filter assembly. Do not use a synthetic resinous fuel filter

    The combination Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator is located on the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank.

    The filter/regulator may be removed without removing fuel pump module although fuel tank must be removed.

    REMOVAL
    1. Remove fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
    2. Clean area around filter/regulator.
    3. Disconnect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.

      10. Install fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
    WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER CONSTANT FUEL PRESSURE EVEN WITH THE ENGINE OFF. THIS PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED BEFORE SERVICING FUEL TANK .

    Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel tank (lowering tank or using DRB scan tool).

    The quickest draining procedure involves lowering the fuel tank.

    As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures. Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541, 6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool number will depend on model and/or engine application). Position opposite end of this hose tool to an approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel pump and drain tank until empty.

    If electric fuel pump is not operating, tank must be lowered for fuel draining. Refer to following procedures.

    FUEL TANK REMOVAL
    1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.

        2. Disconnect EVAP canister vent line near front of tank.
        3. Disconnect fuel pump module electrical connector (pigtail harness) near front of tank. Harness connector is clipped to body.
          1. Remove two fuel tank strap nuts. Position both tank support straps away from tank.
          2. Carefully lower right side of tank while feeding both fuel hoses through access hole in body. Fuel Tank Full And Not Drained Using DRB Scan Tool: To prevent fuel loss through hoses, keep left side of tank higher than right side while lowering. Do not allow hose openings to drop lower than top of tank.
          3. Continue lowering tank until clear of vehicle. Place tank on floor with left side (hose side) higher than right side
            1. Drain tank by removing fuel fill hose at tank. Fuel fill hose is largest of 2 hoses. Insert the drain hose (from an approved gasoline draining station) into hose opening. Drain tank until empty.

    Where is the fuel filter in my 1992 Isuzu Rodeo?


    Look on passenger side frame rail ahead of the rear wheel in a bracket with a fuel line on each end. Before starting replacement-- be sure to release pressure from fuel lines, by removing fuel pump fuse under hood and running engine to use gas from lines. I then remove fuel lines by moving clamps away from fitting so hose can be pulled loose from old filter while it is still in bracket. On top of mounting is a bolt that holds filter clamp in place . After removing clamp and filter from mounting bracket, loosen filter body clamp and slip oout old filter-- then in with the new filter. Then reverse your steps to install filter. After filter is back in place -- reinstall fuel pump fuse, turn on key for a few seconds for gas to refill lines, then start engine and check your installation to make sure you have no fuel leaks at line connections.
