There is not much to it, remove the retainer and pull the line off, now if you broke part of the clip then push the fuel line closer to the filter and get a pair of needle nose pliers and remove the broken plastic

Inline fuel filter replacement


First off you will need to go to a local parts store and get the filter clamp release tool. Then locate the fuel filter under left (drivers) side of the car usually on the frame rail between the fuel tank and drivers door. Remove small locking clips from the filter clamps. Next and use caution and eye protection as fuel line will likely still have some presure. slide clamp release tool into open (filter) side when you get it in position push fuel line and filter together set clamp release tool tight by pushing it toward fuel line then pull on fuel line it should slip right off. Repeat for the fuel line on the other side of the filter. To reinstall simply look for the arrow on the filter and with itr pointing toward the engine push fuel line clamps back onto fuel filter. Replace safety locks turn ing. on and off about 5 times then crank the engine to start.

WHERE IS THE FUEL FILTER ON A 88 NISSAN PATHFINDER


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
NEVER SMOKE WHEN WORKING AROUND OR NEAR GASOLINE! MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO ACTIVE IGNITION SOURCE NEAR YOUR WORK AREA! 1970-83 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the right inner fender in the engine compartment. It is a disposable cartridge type.
  1. Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner.
  2. Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipes.
  3. Pull the filter from the clip and discard.
  4. Install the new filter into the clip. Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, and slide the clamps back into position. Start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Fuel filter - 1970-79 85851035.gif
    Fig. 2: Fuel filter - 1980-83 85851036.gif
1984-86 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame above the left rear spring front shackle. Changing the filter is VERY awkward. Since it is in-line and below tank level, fuel will pour from the fuel lines when they are disconnected from the filter. The only way of preventing this, is to siphon all of the gasoline from the tank before replacing the filter. Another possible method is to clamp and plug the fuel line, but this is not recommended because of the danger of leaking fuel or damage which could occur to the fuel line when clamped. It would, therefore, be a good idea to run the tank almost dry before changing the filter. Once the tank is dry, disconnect the fuel lines at the filter, unbolt the old filter and install a new one. Reconnect the fuel lines, fill the tank, start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 3: Fuel filter - 1984-86 85851037.gif

Fig. 5: Remove the shield, if necessary for fuel filter removal 85851163.jpg
Fig. 6: Removing fuel filter - always replace fuel line clamps 85851164.jpg
Fuel Injected Engines WARNING
Never attempt to remove the fuel filter without first relieving the fuel system pressure!
  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 then slide each line off the filter nipples.
  3. Remove the fuel filter.
  4. Replace the fuel filter. Always be sure to use new hose clamps. Fig. 7: Fuel filter - 1986-88 VG30i 85851038.gif

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1994 dodge ram


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Never smoke when working around gasoline! Avoid all sources of sparks or ignition. Gasoline vapors are EXTREMELY volatile! All 1989–93 Gasoline Engines and 1994–96 2.5L Engines The fuel filter is located in the fuel line on the inside of the left frame rail, just ahead of the crossmember. Fig. 1: Fuel filter location for gasoline engines 88471011.gif
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5.
  2. Unfasten the filter retaining screw and remove the filter from the frame rail.
  3. Wrap a shop towel around the hose connections to catch fuel spillage. Loosen the fuel hose clamps and disconnect the hoses from the filter.
  4. Remove the old fuel filter and replace it with a new one.
  5. Connect the fuel hoses and tighten the hose clamps. Position the filter on the frame rail and tighten the retaining screw to 75 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
1994–96 Gasoline Engines — Except 2.5L The fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pressure regulator which is mounted in the fuel tank. This unit is not controlled by the PCM or engine vacuum. It is calibrated to deliver approximately 35–45 psi (241–310 kPa) of fuel pressure to the injectors. If the pressure exceeds the maximum of the specified range, an internal diaphragm closes to route fuel back into the fuel tank. This system eliminates the need for conventional return lines from the engine bay and accounts for the name of the "Returnless'' fuel injection system employed in these vehicles. NOTE: Fuel tank removal is required for this procedure. Also needed will be external snapring pliers and proper hose clamp pliers, such as No. C-4124 pliers (available through Plymouth/Dodge dealers), or equivalent.
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5. Fig. 2: With the fuel tank removed, twist and pull the fuel filter/regulator for removal from the rubber mounting grommet 88471707.gif

  2. Drain the fuel tank and remove the tank.
  3. Remove the fuel filter/regulator (which is pressed into a rubber grommet) by twisting and pulling it straight up. Fig. 3: Use snapring pliers to remove the retainer securing the cover tube to the base of the filter/regulator 88471708.gif

  4. Remove the snapring retaining the cover tube, then slide it down to reveal the clear plastic fuel tube and its retaining clamp. Fig. 4: Cut off the old tube clamp without damaging the plastic fuel tube 88471709.gif

  5. Gently cut off the old clamp without damaging the tube, then discard the clamp.
  6. Carefully pull the tube off, then remove the filter/regulator from the fuel pump module. To install:
  7. Install a new clamp over the plastic fuel tube and attach it loosely to the filter/regulator. Rotate the unit in the line until it is pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  8. Tighten the clamp using hose clamp pliers such as No. C-4124 (available through the Plymouth/Dodge dealer). NOTE: Do not use conventional side cutters to tighten the clamp.
  9. Slide the cover tube up to the bottom of the filter/regulator and install the snapring.
  10. Carefully press the assembly back into the rubber grommet by hand. It should be pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  11. Install the fuel tank.

Where is fuel filter located on 98 sidekick 4dr auto 4wd 4cyl?


1. Raise the vehicle. Check to make sure the supports are safe and secure. Take a drain pan and several clean shop rags to mop up any spilled fuel.
2. Crawl under the right side of the vehicle between the front and back wheels. Set the drain pan under the fuel filter to catch any fuel that drains from the lines.
3. Press the fuel line clamp tabs with a pair of pliers and detach the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Slide the clamp down both fuel lines away from the fuel filter while maintaining pressure on the clamp.
4. Note the position of the fuel filter inlet and outlet nipples before removing the fuel filter. Remove the lower clamp bolt and loosen the clamp adjusting bolt. Remove the filter from the mounting clamp. Lift the fuel filter out of the mounting clamp.
Install the Fuel Filter:
1. Work under the vehicle. Slide the new filter into its mounting clamp. Tighten the adjusting bolt until it's snug. Turn the filter in the clamp so that the inlet and outlet nipples are in the same position as before removal. Tighten the adjusting bolt. Put the lower clamp bolt in position. Tighten it securely.
2. Connect the outlet hose to the top filter nipple. Connect the inlet hose to the lower nipple. Push the fuel lines up over the nipples as far as possible. Compress the fuel line clamp tabs and slide the clamp up each line until it is secure over the nipple.
3. Position the clamps at least 1/4 inch from the connected end of the fuel lines, making sure the clamps are set over the nipples. Start the engine and allow it to idle. Check for fuel leaks and make the necessary adjustments. Turn the engine off. Lower the vehicle.
Oh and if you missed it, filter is attached with a bracket to a crossmember in front of the fuel tank on the passenger side.

Need to replace a fuel filter on a 1997 Nissian Maxima


Read all 1st it's quite easy. It's mounted on the firewall, closer to the driver side. The filter snaps into its holder. Pull it free, then disconnect the upper and lower hose clamps. This is the tough part - getting both hands in there to stabilize the filter while trying to remove the clamps, especailly the lower one. Make sure the fuel lines are clamped so fuel doesn't leak. Once loose, slide fuel lines off, and replace filter. Make sure filter is put on the right way - there should be a flow indicator arrow on it. Retighten hose clamps (I always liner them up so they are easier to remove the next time), snap filter into place, remove clamps from fuel lines, and your all set. Make sure you depressurize the fuel system before loosening the hose clamps. (Otherwise fuel will spray everywhere - Not Good) Do this by removing the fuel pump fuse while the engine is running. Wait until the engine stops running, then turn off the ignition key. It is easier to get at the fuel filter if you remove filter box and the hose between it and the throttle body. Only a few bolts and clamps hold it in place.
