Relieve fuel system pressure.

When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may appear temporarily. Do not be unduly concerned. The vehicle must be driven for at least 10 miles to allow the engine management computer to relearn its adaptive strategy.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Remove the filter-to-fuel line retainer clips.
Disconnect the quick-connect couplings from both ends of the filter.
Remove the two nuts from the filter studs and remove the fuel filter bracket.

WARNING
Be careful to avoid kinking the fuel lines!
To install: Note the direction-of-flow arrow on the new filter. The arrow should point to the tab of the fuel filter bracket against which the filter rests.

Install the filter assembly and the two nuts. Tighten the nuts to 6-7 ft. Lbs. (8-10 Nm).
Install the push-connect fittings to the filter ends.
Snap the filter into the clips.
Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable.
Turn the ignition switch to RUN several times-without starting the engine-and check for leaks.
