your fuel filter is well hid !! the fuel tank is on the passengers side of your explorer on the fuel filer is located on the front top of your fuel tank ! access to the filter is obtained by removing the heat shield at the front of the fuel tank, there are two bolts retaining the shield to the right frame rail and two bolts retaining the shield to the cross member. once the shield is removed you will see the filter,Be careful removing the fuel lines, the lines have locking clips that DO NOT remove from the lines !! and can be damage if you are not careful (which will result in complete line replacement if the ends are broken. the line clips are released by disengaging the top of the clip then folding the the edge over towards the side its attached to next push both side's in (towards center on top edge) then push clip down part way while pulling line loose .Good luck Thanks for using fix ya
You will need to check inside the frame under the drivers door for the fuel filter. You will need a tool to remove the fuel lines. Remove clips from the fuel line holding the fuel filter (new ones supplied with new filter). Use the tool to insert into the fuel line to remove on both sides. Once lines are removed, remove fuel filter and replace with new ones. Be sure to put in new clips and attach lines. Good luck
They put the fuel filter in the frame rail on the drivers side along side of the transmission. It has special clips to hold it onto the metal tubing. The replacement filters come with a special tool to remove them...be careful not to break the clips..
Try spraying it with some penetrating oil and allow to soak in for about 15 minutes and give it another try. This can soak into the threads to apply lubrication and help free up corrosion so that you may remove it.
There are clips on each end of the fuel filter. make sure to relieve the pressure form the lines before attempting to remove this components. gently remove the clips or clamps form each end of the filter and, slide the filter off the ends of the lines.
The fuel filter itself is held or, attached to the under body by a holding(mounting) clip. release the mount before removing from the line.
I the filter is on the drivers side frame rail to the rear os the transmission cross member.
You must release the fuel pressure in the fuel line or gas will literally spray everywhere. On the passenger side fuel rail (on the engine), there is a Schrader valve which you can depress and it will de-pressurize the lines. Use a K-D 3321 fuel line tool, available at various auto parts store for around $12. Use the smaller 5/16" end. Note the safety clip on the end of the fuel line where it mates to the filter. Remove this by squeezing it together and unhooking the small latch. Your new filter comes with new clips, but I prefer the factory issue as they're somewhat sturdier so I always save them. After you've removed the safety clip, slide the fuel line away from the filter so you've got enough room to insert the tool. On this particular vehicle, one of the fuel tank interfered with my using the tool, so your going to slide the filter partially out of the bracket to gain access. No big deal. Push the tool in to the fuel line (away from the filter) and listen/feel for a click to indicate you've disengaged the locking device from the filter. Once you've disengaged, pull the line away from the filter. At this point you'll start getting some fuel draining out. I like to take the dust cap from the new filter and place it over the discharge end of the old filter to control the mess. Try to move the fuel line so that it's raised to minimize fuel leakage from there as well. Then moved on to removing the fuel line from the inlet side of the filter. Note the "teeth." These are springs that lock on the raised flange of the fuel filter. When you insert the tool to disconnect, you are pressing in on these springs. When you're ready to install the new filter, insert it into the bracket and press the fuel lines on to the new filter. Just as you felt/listened for a click when removing the fuel lines, listen/feel for a click during installation. After you've hooked the fuel lines to the new filter, install the safety clips and you're done. It's that easy. Good luck and hope this helps.
