Removal and Installation

WARNING: Do not smoke or carry lighted tobacco or open flame of any type when working on or near any fuel-related component. Highly flammable mixtures are always present and may be ignited, resulting in possible personal injury.
Do not carry personal electronic devices such as cell phones, pagers or audio equipment of any type when working on or near any fuel-related components. Highly flammable mixtures are present and may be ignited. Failure to follow these instructions can result in personal injury.
Fuel in the fuel system remains under high pressure even when the engine is not running. Before repairing or disconnecting any of the fuel system components, the fuel system pressure must be relieved to prevent accidental spraying of fuel causing personal injury or a fire hazard.
With the vehicle in NEUTRAL, position it on a hoist.
Release the fuel system pressure.
Disconnect the battery ground cable.
Disconnect the 3 fuel tube quick connect couplings at the fuel filter.
Remove the 2 fuel filter shield pin-type retainers and the fuel filter shield.
Remove the fuel filter assembly.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.
