Jack up the rear left side of the car, make sure its chocked and has stands underneath. Scoot under just in front of the tyre, and the fuel filter will be right above you. Cant really miss it. Undo the fittings, one on either end, making sure you use the correct size spanners, or pipe spanners if you can get a hold of them. then slide it out of its holder, put the new one in, and screw the lines back on. Make sure the filter is flowing in the right direction, and make sure the fuel line fittings dont cross thread as they go in. Once everything is done up nice and tight, turn the key to the on position, wait a second or two, and turn it off. Check under the car for fuel leaks around the fittings. If everything is good, let it back down and youre done!



The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

what Andrew J said....but before you decide to pull the filter out make sure you relieve the pressure. to relieve the pressure pull either the fuel pump relay out or unplug the fuel pump all together. start the car until motor doesnt start anymore. then you can do what Andrew J said. good luck =D

oh make sure you wear goggles......petrol in eyes = pain
