FUEL FILTER

1997 Hyundai Tiburon

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Hyundai Tiburon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

im trying to replace a fuel filter on my 1997 hyundai tiburon fx coupe 2.0L 4Cyl, the fuel line that runs into the top of it uses a 10MM bolt, and the housing that it clamps into uses a 10MM bolt, however the fuel line that bolts into the bottom uses a different size bolt, and for the life of me I cant figure out what size it is. Help please?

Hi malibu1320,

Thank you for the donation.

The lower hex nuut is 14 mm and you would need pipe wrench to loosen it. A 17 or 19 mm open end spanner is required to hold the filter end while unloosening this nut.

I tried 14MM, and all it did was round over the edges, was too big, also, its impossible to fit a pipe wrench in there. I ended up eventually getting it with a crescent wrench, and the clamp that the filter was in holds it fine for loosening.
