REMOVAL
Drain fuel tank and remove tank.
Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
Fig 22 Filter/Regulator Location

The fuel filter/regulator is pressed into a rubber grommet.
Remove by twisting and pulling straight up (Fig. 23).
CAUTION: Do not pull the filter/regulator more than three inches from the fuel pump module. Damage to the coiled fuel tube (line) may result.

Fig 24 Plastic Tube And Snap Ring -- Typical
Remove the snap ring retaining the convoluted tube (cover) to the filter/regulator (Fig. 24). Slide the plastic tube down the fuel tube to clear the fuel tube clamp.
Fig 25 Fuel Tube And Clamp -- Typical
Gently cut the old fuel tube (line) clamp (Fig. 25) taking care not to damage the plastic fuel tube. Remove and discard the old fuel tube clamp.
Remove the plastic fuel tube from the filter/regulator gently pulling downward. Remove filter/regulator from fuel pump module
