Fuel Line Disconnect Tool

Posted on Jul 26, 2008

  • Tyler Jul 26, 2008

    Sorry, there wasn't a specific filter listed. Figured it was the easy one. On that one, there are usually three tabs sticking up a bit.

    The correct and safe way is to get a fuel tank sender wrench. There are other ways though...


  • Tyler Jul 26, 2008

    I would start by calling a few parts stores to see if they can get one, if not, next up is the parts department at the dealership.

    Either that, or you have on that unbolts, and it would be even easier. The service department at a Hyundai dealership would be able to tell you for sure.

Remove td 4 feul filter


  • Park your Land Rover on level ground and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse box underneath the dashboard. Start the engine, let it stall and turn off the ignition switch.

  • 2

    Jack up both rear wheels off the ground with a floor jack, if you need extra space to work under the vehicle. Support the vehicle with two safety stands.

  • 3

    Work on either one of the fuel lines connected to the filter by holding the molded nut at the end of the filter with a backup wrench and unfasten the line retaining nut with a flare wrench. Use a shop rag to absorb any residual fuel in the line. Disconnect the line on the other end of the filter using the same procedure.

  • 4

    Unfasten the bolt on the filter mounting bracket with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Note in which direction the arrow on the filter's body points to and remove the fuel filter from the vehicle.

  • 5

    Remove the O-rings from the fittings of the two disconnected lines. Coat two new O-rings with clean engine oil and install one on each of the line fittings.

Installing the New Fuel Filter
  • 1

    Position the new fuel filter into the mounting bracket with the arrow pointing in the same direction as the arrow on the old filter was pointing and tighten the bracket bolt with the ratchet and socket.

  • 2

    Connect the fuel lines to the filter fittings by hand first to avoid stripping the fitting threads. Hold the filter molded nut with the backup wrench and tighten the line retaining nut with the flare wrench.

  • 3

    Lower your Land Rover with the floor jack, if you had to raise it.

  • 4

    Replace the fuel pump fuse in the fuse box and turn the ignition switch on to pressurize the fuel system.

  • 5

    Check the two lines connected to the fuel filter for leaks and turn off the ignition switch.

Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Remove the quick connect fitting from the filter 91141p82.jpg
Fig. 2: Using a 21mm back-up wrench and a 16mm wrench on the line, loosen the feed line from the filter 91141p83.jpg
Fig. 3: Carefully unthread the feed line from the filter and . . . 91141p84.jpg
Fig. 4: . . . remove the filter from the retaining bracket by pulling the filter outward 91141p85.jpg
NOTE: The vehicles covered in this manual are equipped with "Quick Connect'' fuel fittings. For more information regarding these fittings, please refer to Section 5 of this manual. An inline filter can be found in the fuel feed line attached to the rear crossmember of the vehicle. CAUTION
Before disconnecting any component of the fuel system, refer to the fuel pressure release procedures found in Section 5.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure as outlined in Section 5.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. Grasp the filter and nylon fuel line fitting on the tank-to-filter line. Twist the "quick-connect'' fitting 1?4 or a turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Use compressed air to blow out the dirt from the fittings at the end of the fuel filter.
  4. Detach the quick-connect fitting by pushing inward toward the filter and grasping the plastic tab around the connector and pull apart. If additional assistance is required to disconnect the fitting, tool J 38778 or equivalent can be placed between the filter and the fitting release mechanism to carefully force the two apart. Be careful not to bend the special tool. NOTE: Always use a back-up wrench anytime the fuel filter is removed or installed.
  5. Using a backup wrench (where possible) to prevent overtorquing the lines or fittings, loosen and disconnect the feed line from the filter. Be sure to position a rag in order to catch any remaining fuel which may escape when the fittings are loosened.
  6. Remove the fuel filter from the retaining bracket. To install:
  7. Before installing a new filter, apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube end of the filter. This will ensure proper attachment and prevent a fuel leak.
  8. Position the filter into the retaining bracket with the directional arrow facing away from the fuel tank, towards the throttle body. NOTE: The filter has an arrow (fuel flow direction) on the side of the case, be sure to install it correctly in the system, with the arrow facing away from the fuel tank.
  9. Push the connectors on the quick-connect fitting together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place. Pull on both ends of the connection to be sure they are secure.
  10. Connect the fuel feed line to the filter, then tighten, using a backup wrench to prevent damage, to 20-22 ft. lbs. (27-30 Nm).
  11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable and tighten the fuel filler cap, then start the engine and check for leaks.

2001 Honda Accord Rear ended. Car is now repaired can't take it from Auto body shop because they say something is draining the battery. Car worked fine before I was rear ended. Have to press gas pedal to...


The fuel filter/fuel pump combo unit may have been damaged in the accident. The unit is located inside the fuel tank and can be accessed from under the back seat. This unit also hauses the fuel guage sending unit as well as the fuel pressure regulator. You will need a special spanner wrench to remove the retaining ring. The Honda part number for the spanner is 07AAA-50XA100. Be careful when you remove the unit from the fuel tank as the float arm and float are really fragile.

Good luck and God Bless.
