If there is not a hex fitting for a wrench and there are not tabs to depress.Then yes you will.They are easily available through your local parts dealer.Remember to pull the fuel pump fuse or relay and start the engine over until it will not run.This relieves the fuel pressure on the line and will make it easier to service.Dont forget to put the fuse back in afterwards...Good Luck!!!!!

1. if it has a round circle end you need a simple tool to put on and push tool in too release the lock spring and then pull line out.
2. if you see white ends on each side squeeze the white end together push in a little and then pull the line out.

Fuel lines from the fuel filter

oh boy.... now you need a flare kit and redo the ends of the lines going to a flare nut 9/16 and then use a old fuel filter from a 1970 chev or something . im guessing you had the clip on lines where you needed a special tool to unlock the lines .

Fuelfilter try to change fuelfilter and wont come

ou need a special tool to remove the fuel lines on your vehicle. Fortunately Ford had the wisdom to provide it to you. Here's how to do it.

Warning: because of the combustion characteristics of gasoline, always use extreme care when removing and installing any fuel system component or personal injury or damage to the vehicle may occur.

  1. Perform the fuel pressure release procedure.
  2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  3. Remove push connect fittings at both ends of the fuel filter. NOTE: To remove 5/16" push-connect fittings, use Fuel Line Removal Tool T90T-9550-B or tool supplied on vehicle. Tool is located 254 mm (10 in.) behind fuel filter. Place in glove compartment after use.
  4. Install new retainer clips in each connect fitting.
  5. Remove fuel filter by pulling fuel filter toward center line of vehicle and free from fuel filter bracket. NOTE: The flow arrow direction should be positioned forward and downward to make sure of proper fuel flow through replacement fuel filter.



  1. Install fuel filter in fuel filter bracket, ensuring proper direction of flow.
  2. Install push connect fittings at both ends of fuel filter.
  3. Lower vehicle.
  4. Start engine and inspect for leaks.

Replacing my fuel filter on a 2000 Buick LaSabre Custom..any special tools needed and where is it located

There is no special tools needed, you will probably find the fuel fuel filter beneath the undercarriage of the vehicle, check both sides just below the seating area and if not found there you will have to trace the fuel line from the fuel tank forward intil you locate the fuel filter.

Don't know how to change fuel filter on this one.

This one takes a special tool to un-clip the fuel line from the filter. Aso,If you can't get the clip to release, you wind up cutting the filter ends off with a hacksaw. The money you thought you saved, just went into an all day project,laying on your back.Unless you want to buy a special tool you only use once in awhile, let someone replace it that has one.

How do I replace fuel filter in 2006 Ford 500 ? I know that it is under the backseat of the passenger side. I heard the clips should be slidden back not popped off. So do I need a "special" tool? Any...

Hello Rhonda: My name is Roger and I will help you. To replace the fuel filter you will need a special tool. You should be able to buy these at any parts store.Before you start to replace the filter keep in mind that the system is under pressure. Make sure you have the right tool by making sure the tool is a snug fit on the new filter stem. Locate the old filter and remove the safety locks,
. Insert the tool as far as it will go. Twist and pull gently to release the lock.repeat for the opposite end. Do not force the lock as they damage easily. The new filter will self lock as you install it on the fuel lines. Listen for the lines to click. Reinstall the safety locks. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer. This way we know you received the correct help.Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

How do I disconnect the fwd. fuel pipe coupling (under the engine

You will need a sppring lock removal tool. Go to a parts store and ask them for the fuel line removal tool kit. There should be 5-6 pieces and it is not that expensive. The tool itself has a **** in it and a big end and a small end. You slip the tool over the metal line small end towards the lock and just push it in and pull the lines apart.
